Integrating art and creative projects into your classroom curriculum is a great way to help students gain self-awareness of their emotions, discover safe ways to express difficult feelings, and make proactive choices toward setting and meeting goals. Art comes in many forms, and all persons are inherently creative. In this presentation, we’ll remove the roadblocks to establishing a flourishing creative environment in your classroom.
Using hands-on, personalized projects with tools every student already has, you’ll discover how to direct students to independently shift from a dark, challenging emotion to a light, empowering emotion. You’ll find a variety of creative approaches to self-expression that encourage students to find their talents, build stronger peer connections, and set and achieve personal goals.
