From "grief victim" to GRIEF ARTIST
Project Grief works with the idea that anyone (not just professional artists) can learn to be a "grief artist". Grief artists are people who take the pain of life & transform it into tools and lessons that help them to continually discover a new identity, to love deeper, be more present, and to better work through difficulties as they come.
It all begins with a change in mindset from seeing yourself as a passive "victim" of grief, to approaching thoughts and feelings as a “grief artist”. You, yes you, can be a grief artist, too.
In this creative workshop, we’ll construct a paint palette to demonstrate the colors with which we are painting our lives. We’ll talk about the characteristics of a grief victim (who lives in only greys, blacks, and blue) and a grief artist (who lives out of the full color spectrum).
All you’ll need to participate:
- a white paper plate (or a piece of cardboard, card stock)
a piece of paper
a pen or pencil to write with
colorful implements of your choice (watercolor, acrylic, markers, crayons, etc.)
