Grieving and coming to terms with the loss of a loved one takes time – sometimes a long time. There is no easy way through it, no guide book, and no step by step paths to follow. However, there are things you can do to help alleviate the pain, accommodate your loss and find a meaningful life – albeit reshaped.
These may include spending time with friends and family, exercise, appreciating nature. Journalling can be useful for some. Creating art can be another. Art can help us understand and acknowledge – perhaps better accept – sorrow and loss, by providing the space to find clarity and the language to express deep feelings, especially those difficult to put into words. This can be useful for the viewer and/ or the maker.
Art for Soothing & Strengthening is a program designed for people who are feeling those profound emotions of grief and loss. You are welcomed into a creative space where you can create – maybe something honouring the person you have lost, expressing your deep emotions, or simply enjoying the pleasures of creating. Creating art at a time of sorrow and grieving, perhaps by making a memorial piece to remember or commemorate a loved one can be an uplifting experience for individuals, families or groups.
