Permission to Grieve: With Watercolor & Crayon Resist - FREE Online Event
Hosted by Project Grief
Monday, July 13, 2020 from 12:10 - 1:00 PM (MST)
The first step toward healing after a loss, is granting oneself permission to grieve.
This about HOW to do it by creating a simple watercolor art project as a way of granting that permission.
Even if you’re a total beginner, art is an incredible tool for healing.
During this virtual event, you’ll:
1.) LISTEN about the importance of granting yourself permission to grieve
2.) LEARN some ideas on HOW to do it
3.) TRY IT OUT for yourself with a simple watercolor & crayon resist activity.
Materials: Watercolors (tubes, cakes, or even that 8 color Crayola kid set will do),
Watercolor paper, watercolor brush, cup of water, paper towel, AND a white crayon (very important!).
If you have questions about art materials or content, please contact
Danica Thurber directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Transform An Old Photo Into a Keepsake Drawing with Project Grief
Project Grief just released a new e-course that teaches how to transform a photograph
of a loved one into a keepsake pencil portrait.
Step-by-step instructions and the use of TRACING (yes, tracing!) ensure that even
beginner artists can achieve a high level of likeness - that means you'll end up
with a portrait you can be so very proud of!
The course is super affordable - only $25 - and when you enroll this month, you’ll
get a BONUS mini-course: Coloring for Self-care ($15 value).

If a co-worker, friend, or far away family member experiences a loss you may want to send a card,
but what do you say? Avoid these common mistakes and get to know some actually helpful things
you can write. Words have power to wound, cover up, or actually help them heal.
Art Journaling for Grieving Parents (& those who lost what will never be) with artist Danica Thurber of Project Grief
Follow along with the lovely Danica Thurber of Project Grief during a replay of a special Watch Party where you'll do an easy art activity. Grieving what will never be (vs. grieving what was) is a kind of loss that requires special attention and care. This kind of grief hits parents most when they lose a child. No art experience required.
All you need is something to write with and something to write on.
Project Grief: Growth Mindsets for Grievers - Free Webinar - Part 1
Project Grief: Growth Mindsets for Grievers - Free Webinar - Part 2
Have you ever thought "I should be done feeling like 'this' by now"?
This kind of "fixed mindset" actually stifles grief and keeps you from ever "feeling better"!
We can't change our loss or the circumstances around us, but we do have the power over our mindset.
"Growth mindset" is a way of thinking that opens up new possibilities and paves the way for change and growth.
In these 2 FREE webinar replays, hosted by Danica Thurber from Project Grief, you'll learn some new powerful changes in mindset, as well as a few practical tips and tricks as to how you can put them into practice in your life.
I highly recommend Project Grief and have taken the mini-course, master course & Holidays After Loss Course myself with great results. If you’re interested in learning more about Project Grief resources or purchasing a course,
