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.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
