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 edWebinar, 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.
During this edWebinar, attendees:
- Review what creativity is and what art looks like to students
- Explore creative and art activities that acknowledge and honor all emotions
- Discover the importance of implementing an arts-based peer group for students
- Learn about tools that are accessible to classroom teachers to develop creative activities
This edWebinar will be of interest to educators of students in grades 6 through 12, school and district leaders, librarians, counselors and coaches, and curriculum directors.
