The purpose of this case study was to examine how artistic activities and creating mandalas help facilitate the emotional support of 14 female high school students who experienced the death of a family member. The group participated in 8 sessions that were designed to use art as the expression of emotions and allowed them to acknowledge and gain an understanding of their feelings of loss. The group developed a visual language of colors and shapes and applied them to their ceramic mandala tiles. The students permanently mounted the tiles on a school wall which provides them with a place for reflection. The results of this study indicate that this type of program could be helpful for grieving adolescents.
