Upcoming Community Groups

After the death of someone we love, grief can feel overwhelming and all consuming.  In partnership with New Hope’s founder Susan Beeney we will be offering a Mosaic Art Class for those living with grief. Susan Beeney has been practicing mosaic art for years and discovered how its a peaceful time to express our grief in a gentle, creative, and reflective way.  Participants will learn the basics of mosaic art and create a 5 x 7′ mosaic memory piece to honor their loved one.  It is important that we take charge over our grief by providing ourselves with times of peaceful respite and art is a healthy way to do that.   

Date: January 27 & February 3, 9:00 am-11:30
Cost: $60: Includes two sessions, all supplies, snacks, beverages and group time.
Location: 3832 Radnor Ave. Long Beach 90808
Materials: Please be sure to bring mementos of your loved one, to add into the mosaic (please note-these pieces will be broken into pieces or can be already broken pieces of anything that is a reminder of their loved one)
