Coping with the loss of a loved one is one of the biggest challenges a person can encounter in life. For some people, the traditional ways of communicating about his/her experience seem inadequate, because some feelings seem impossible to put into words. The creative arts offer another way to express one’s grief. Join art therapist Sarah D’Agostino for a discussion of how artists through history — from Rembrandt to Edvard Munch to Kathe Kollwitz — have used art to express and process feelings when words didn’t suffice, and how creativity can be used in the healing process. An experiential art-making session will follow the presentation. Absolutely no prior experience in the creative arts is necessary.
This program is open to anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer.
