Loss takes us beyond words; we must go beyond words to heal. Learn how creativity can help you externalize the pain inside, and then try a simple doodling activity for yourself. Beginners welcome!

When the pain of loss takes us beyond words, we must go beyond words to heal.

Even if you’re at “stick-figure level,” art is an incredible tool for healing. During this virtual event, you’ll:

  1. LISTEN to my personal story of healing through art
  2. LEARN how creativity can help YOU externalize the pain inside
  3. TRY IT OUT for yourself with a simple doodle activity.

Materials: Pen and paper are the only things you’ll need.

I (Danica) was twelve when I lost my dad to a sudden heart attack. A string of other losses followed, and in my desire to hold-it-all-together, grief threatened to engulf me. Always an artist, I began learning to express not just beauty and light, but also pain and death - finding much healing in the process. I am a Therapeutic Art Life Coach, as well as co-owner, and instructor for ProjectGrief.Org, an online school that teaches art as a tool for personal grief recovery.
