Self-Counselling Through Art

Gary Andrews is a former Disney animator who lost his wife very suddenly to sepsis in 2017. His series of Doodle-a-Day drawings captured the depths of his grief, and the realities of his ongoing day-to-day life with his children as the family moved through their grief.

Join this recorded workshop to hear the father-of-two talk about the funny side of grief and solo parenting, and to explore for yourself the way drawing can help you work through the pain of grief.

All ages and all levels of drawing ability are welcome as you seek to find expression, beauty and humour through creating cartoons or a visual diary. You’ll need pens or pencils and paper at the ready.
