The holidays are just around the corner, and are usually a time for cheer, giving and family. But this time of year can also give way to overwhelming emotions for those who have lost a loved one. Many people struggle to cope with these feelings, which is why Boise artist Danica Thurber has set up a workshop to help people through the tough times -- using art therapy. She joins Idaho Matters to tell her story about how she became inspired to help others.
