Art with Heart’s purpose is to spread the healing power of creative expression to kids facing trauma or adversity. Coming soon, we will be relaunching our website which will serve as a forum for greater connection and inspiration.

We know that evolution and self-expression go hand in hand. As we enter our third decade, we are evolving our brand expression to represent the greater possibility and momentum experienced through partnership. It will be a place where you can read stories of incredible personal growth, experience the impact that your engagement and support have on kids around the world, and connect with others.

This INTENSIVE TRAINING provides a road-map for
using Draw It Out, Art with Heart’s newest therapeutic tool!

This intensive one-day course prepares participants to help grieving children through creative expression, using Draw It Out as their guide. Participants will receive:

  • An understanding of best practices for utilizing creative expression with children
  • A thorough understanding of the structure and flow of both the Draw It Out workbook and Draw It Out Leader’s Companion

ABOUT DRAW IT OUT: The Draw It Out program takes a holistic approach and blends facets of cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy and art therapy. The program centers around the use of creative expression and the use of the Draw It Out book. The book was developed by a team of bereavement professionals and is a therapeutic and interactive workbook that uses creativity to help children (ages 6+) cope with grief and loss. The program can be utilized with children in individual and group counseling, at bereavement camps, and after a school tragedy.

TRAINERS: The class is co-led by Lulu Verneuil, MSW, clinical social worker for over 15 years, Nancy Stillger, MA, program consultant for Art with Heart, and Sally Neumann, LMHCA, program coordinator for Art with Heart.
