Permission to Grieve: with watercolor & crayon resist

Hosted by Project Grief

Permission to Grieve: with watercolor & crayon resist
The first step toward healing after a loss, is granting oneself permission to grieve. We’ll talk about HOW to do it by creating a simple watercolor art project as a way of granting that permission.

Society has a way of ignoring or even blatantly refusing us the right to grieve our lost person. Because we are here to Reimagine Life, Loss & Love, it’s time to change that.

But know what? Permission to grieve begins with ourselves. You may be the only one who is able to tell yourself, “it’s OK to miss them. It’s OK to cry. It’s OK to grieve.”

And we’ll do it together through a simple watercolor art project.

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!)
