Students who experience emotional or behavioral challenges often struggle to be successful in school. Building social emotional skills and literacy through visual art can help students manage their feelings in ways that increase their personal power and enhance safety, health, and happiness for them and those around them. This session focuses on celebrating students’ individuality and building self-esteem. Self-awareness and self-management are vital social emotional skills, and in this workshop, educators will learn how to encourage students’ unique voices and creativity through the art of collage. Participants will become familiar with the elements of art (tools artists use to make art) and principles of design (how to use the tools). They will then apply their learning in the creation of an original artwork. Participants will leave with another creative strategy for integrating visual art and social emotional learning in their classrooms.

  • Session 3 of a 4 part series. Can also be presented as a stand alone session.
