Loss brings overwhelming emotions and thoughts.
Sometimes we need a little help.

ART is a powerful tool for grief recovery.

You can learn how to use it - no previous art experience necessary.

We'll lead you step-by-step on your grief journey, as you learn to embrace what it means to transform from a "grief victim" to a Grief Artist.

We've created an online course jam-packed with beautiful art projects, instructions, PDF templates, and high-resolution video. Enrolled students also enjoy a private Facebook group for additional instructor and peer support.

Your Instructor

When I was twelve years old, my dad passed away of a sudden heart attack. I struggled to understand and express my grief for many years afterward, and art was sometimes my only outlet for grief.

I graduated from Washington State University with a thesis on "Cultural Expressions of Grief Through Art", which was published in an online journal that same year. Since then, I have spoken at multiple conferences nationwide and led grief art workshops throughout the Northwest. I am now a practicing artist and certified Therapeutic Art Life Coach.

I created Project Grief so I could help others learn the power of art to heal after experiencing a loss.

But guess what?

You don't have to be an artist to use art to process your grief.

"I never knew experiencing grief had any positive side to it so I simply ran away from it all the time... I'm beginning to see the good from the loss."
