Crafting Authenticity: Tapping Into Creativity from the Inside Out
Monday, March 1, 3 – 5 pm
Register by: 5 pm on Friday, February 26
As art is nourishment for our mind and soul, children benefit greatly when they can create or learn about art in a way that validates their experiences. This opportunity is particularly critical for children of color, who don’t often see their faces, culture and ways of being reflected in general society.
In this workshop, we will talk about the importance of arts’ cultural relevancy and provide interactive examples of how you can help students use their personal understanding of the world to express creativity in a way that fosters their inner strength, confidence and self-assurance. This intention of shifting from art to heART can also become a social-emotional awakening strategy to help children find their source of inspiration within, step into a river of creativity and begin to flow toward unraveling the mystery of their own selves.
Led by S. Renee Mitchell and Jason Graham
