Art as a Universal Tool to Heal
This event is scheduled for Monday Sept. 26th at 5pm Pacific Time US which is TUESDAY Sept. 27th at 10am in Sydney Australia.
Whether you're a professional artist teacher or not even a doodler, come explore how you might build a relationship with grief through art.
In this workshop Grief Coach Jenny Dilts and Artist Jean Kropper will explore the umbrella topics of Grief and Art and how they can intersect. We will discuss different facets of grief-- how it's universal, individual, and unique to every person-- as we play with different art techniques to express what we're learning and experiencing.
No art experience is necessary. Bring some markers and some paper, or even just pencil and some scrap paper for this fun and interactive workshop on grief through an artist's eyes.
Jenny will lead the discussion portion on grief and how Jean used art to heal, then Jean will take over for the artistic portion with exercises we can do to give expression to the experiences we are going through.
