Art and grief are both a process. Doing ART can have a direct effect on your grief journey as you navigate life after loss.

In this course, we’ll help you figure out where you’re at in your grief, and then help you set some goals for your healing journey - all the time using art as a metaphor and tool for grief recovery.

No previous art experience is necessary. Let’s get started!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Grief Art 101 and why is it free?
Grief Art 101 is an introduction and preview to our full course, Project Grief. We're offering Grief Art 101 for free because we know it's hard to take that first step in helping yourself out of your grief. This preview will help you get to know us, and offer some support in taking that first step.
Do I need to be an artist to complete this course?
If you're nervous about the art part, don't worry any longer! Unlike fine art, which is all about the quality of the final product, grief-art is all about the process.

I'll show you everything you need; you can follow the easy step-by-step video tutorial, and enjoy freedom to be creative when you want to.

All you need is a piece of paper and coloring implements. You can get out your art kit, or just grab a piece of printer paper and a few pens and highlighters. Don't make this complicated - just get started on your grief art!

"Loss is so hard! I've been there. I lost my dad to a sudden heart attack when I was twelve years old. We lost my grandma to cancer the following year, then a close aunt right after that. Grief and art have always been a big part of my life, and I created Project Grief to pass on the techniques, mindsets, and resources I developed to help myself through."
