The “Art of Grieving” is a monthly program for children and teens who are grieving a loss. Children and/or teens (under the age of 18) who are registered for the program will receive all the supplies needed to complete the activity for the month.
A video showing how to complete the activity will be available at Androscoggin.org/bereavement beginning on the 24th of the month. Guidance for caregivers about how to support their grieving child or teen will be included with the supply kit. Art can help people who are mourning the loss of a loved one to open up to the opportunity to express their grief-related feelings and emotions.
The creation of art helps with processing sensory and emotional experiences in the bereaved. All activities are being offered free of charge to any children or teens in the community who are grieving.
To register, please complete the form below, or call Androscoggin’s Bereavement Department at 207-795-9468. The deadline to register for each activity will be the 21st of the month.
June – Mosaic of Love
Do you feel comforted when you’re in a special spot outside? Maybe you like to sit in your yard or garden and think about your loved one. With this month’s project you will cast small objects that remind you of your loved one in a mold to create a Memory Mosaic that can be placed anywhere–like your special outside spot.
