Healing Grief Through Art - Memorial Art Workshop

🎨✨ Memorial Art Workshop: Crafting Memories to Treasure Forever ✨🎨

This workshop welcomes anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, whether it be a cherished pet like a cat or any other animal, or a human being. Grief knows no boundaries and requires processing and acceptance regardless of who has passed. The pain of loss is universal, touching our hearts with equal intensity. Let's turn this pain into beautiful expressions of art together.

About the workshop:
Art speaks where words can't in expressing grief.
Join Enid Traisman certified grief counselor and GiftyKitty glass artist and Clody Cates all around artist and GiftyKitty designer/co-owner for an heartfelt creative journey.
