Just like grief differs from person to person… it differs based on age, especially for children. Take for example the two paintings below. Each were created by kids of Kate’s Club, the first by the teens and the second one by the “tweens”. The groups were asked to depict what grief looks like to them.

The teen’s painting illustrated their ability to connect with a variety of emotions through grief.

The “tweens” painting reveals more concrete images and reactions to grief.
