We celebrate the important role of art and creativity in wellness, and social-emotional well-being for our children and youth.  Art has the potential to help any child experiencing learning, behaviour, and emotional problems. It opens up a nonverbal form of communication for those who have a hard time communicating their thoughts and feelings (e.g., young children, those who are shy and withdrawn, those with limited vocabulary, those who have been traumatised). It has the potential to help all youngsters to better know their emotions, know themselves, and cope with obstacles during pivotal developmental stages of life.

 

We’ll use art, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem, discover hidden abilities, and learn that each one is a unique piece of art.

Art gives children a way to convey thoughts or feelings that may seem too complex to be expressed in words. School – can promote safety during times of uncertainty, trauma, or conflict.
