Expressive Arts for Grieving Children, Teens & Families
Our popular Expressive Arts program is an interactive, educational and fun experience for grieving children (ages 5-12) and teens (ages 13-18) who have been touched by the death of someone they love.
Using art, music and other creative mediums, participants are expertly guided by our team of trained and enthusiastic facilitators in a safe & compassionate setting.
Involvement in Expressive Arts programming provides children, teens and their families with the necessary social sanction and permission to express their feelings and find comfort and relief in knowing that others feel the way they do and that they are not alone.
In the spirit and philosophy of hospice care, these programs are offered at no charge.
Parents or guardians of children attend a concurrent facilitated group where they explore issues of how to best support their child while they too may be grieving.
Colored Tears Summer Daycamp
Grief doesn’t take a summer break. Each year we offer two summer day camps for youth age 6-12 years old – one in July in Edmonton, and one in August in Sherwood Park.
Individual and Family Counselling
To further explore the complexities of the grief journey, we offer individual and family counselling at both Edmonton and Sherwood Park locations. Some evening and weekend appointments are available.
