WINONA, Minnesota (WKBT) – The Winona Health Hospice is presenting Good Grief: Painting Through Loss, a hands-on watercolor class, on Friday, April 8 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Faye Schoen will lead the class at the lower level senior living at Watkins Manor at 175 E Wabasha St. in Winona.

Participants will receive instructions and materials to paint step by step. You’ll learn wet-on-wet techniques, with tips and tricks to loosen up and enjoy the magic inherent in watercolor painting. The Winona Health Hospice provides the materials.

One of the goals of the course is for participants to relax into the process while enjoying the company of others.

Schoen donates her services in memory of her late husband Tom, former chaplain and bereavement coordinator at Winona Health Hospice. She has many years of training, experience and teaching as an artist and former teacher of special education and community education.

“The process of making art can relieve emotional stress and anxiety by inducing a physiological response of mood change,” according to Cathy Malchiodi’s Art Therapy Sourcebook.

Space is limited. To enroll, contact Winona Health Hospice at (507) 457-4468 or email [email protected] by Friday, April 1.
