About Memorial Art Workshops


This is a free community event. Donations are welcome and appreciated.

One of the best ways to navigate your grief when you lose a pet is by memorializing them through art. Research shows that art and healing come from the same source. In fact, it is now known that when a person is creating art or is healing, this person will emit the same brain wave patterns. Art and healing are so powerful that hospitals are incorporating art into patient care.
 

Facts about the healing elements of art:

  • Participation in artistic activities can have measurable physiological results such as, reducing stress, improving the immune system, and easing pain
  • Creating art gives a voice and language to unknown emotions, feelings and behaviors Tapping into our creative energy can help a person to feel more alive, to gain inner wisdom, and to stay more completely in the present moment
  • When creating art, it uses the emotional and intuitive aspects of a person
     

Each month offers a new opportunity to create something unique and take it home with you! Pets welcome in spirit only. Thank you for understanding.

Please note: We want to ensure that the maximum number of people have the opportunity to enjoy these workshops. If you have attended several workshops in recent months, we ask that you wait to reserve space for an upcoming workshop until the Friday before to allow first-time attendees the opportunity to sign up. Thank you for understanding.
