This class is a creative outlet for anyone in the community who is dealing with any form of loss - the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or any general grief. You do not need to be an artist to be able to communicate your thoughts and emotions. Using the materials we will provide can help facilitate what words cannot describe. The art making process will provide your insight, allow you to grow and connect with others, which can help you throughout your healing journey.
Instructor: Michelle Heraly-Bonde Sundays, 1:00-3:00pm Classes are free; However donations are accepted

Vision Board June 2, 2019 Nothing can interrupt a dream like loss. Life not only takes an unexpected turn, but it feels like our story has ended. In reality, the story does continue. Dream for yourself once more by creating a vision board, which will serve as inspiration for the future.
Beauty Collage August 18, 2019 Creative practices can help deepen your connection with that which is lost. Grief involves a variety of emotions, all of which can be overwhelming. The construction of a collage allows for reflection on the experience of loss and exploration of what is impossible to articulate.
