Creating Confidence: 4-Week Art Series for Kids
April 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This special creative arts program uses art exercises to help children and youth build confidence, self-esteem, and an authentic identity. During this 4-week program, participants will explore their personal identity through art projects that build confidence. They will identify their positive traits, craft a personal identity, explore their place in relationships, and vision for their future.
Each 90-minute class will include:
- Mindful Exercises to Relax & Develop Inner Awareness
- Interactive Art Project for Personal Growth
- Personal Reflection
- Small Group Discussions
Research suggests that when children are creative, they are able to manage their emotions, feel confident in who they are, and navigate difficult situations. By playing with different art materials, they can learn new strategies to self-regulate and release stress, tension, and anxiety in their body. All exercises in this series will be selected with the intention of personal growth and development.
