CREATING ART AS THERAPY FOR PREGNANCY AND INFANT LOSS
Wednesday September 27th
Athens Public Library
In preparation for October, which is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, we are putting on a unique monthly meeting. If you have ever experienced the loss of a child, whether it be during pregnancy or after your child was born, or if you are a grandparent or friend of someone who has experienced a loss of this kind, you are welcome to join us for a special evening. We will diverge from our regular meeting format to provide a supportive space for all to create artwork. Your experience of loss may be recent or have happened a while ago, either way you are welcome. There’s no pressure to have any ideas ahead of time or have any experience creating artwork, and you do not have to share your art with others. This evening is about exploring the healing qualities that creating art can provide us as we grieve. Lots of different supplies will be provided, so plan to join us for a truly special evening.
