Healing Through Art is a project offered by Through the Heart to help you express your emotions, deal with grief, and memorialize your lost child(ren). The project is presented in full detail with step-by-step instructions and photos to allow you to complete it at your own pace and have been created by one of our organization’s volunteers, Donna. In each tutorial Donna shares specific examples of projects she personally has completed but keep in mind that these projects are meant to be individualized, not copied, so don’t stress about making it look exactly the same. Since everyone’s journey of pregnancy loss is different, the ideas given here are meant as examples of what you can do. There is no right or wrong way to complete a project.It is our hope that this project will provide a creative outlet for you to process your loss. If at any time you have questions, need assistance, or just feel stuck, please contact us so we can help guide you through to completion.
If you’re ready, let’s get started!
