Art for Mindful Kids (Ages 6-12)
with Strength Heroes
Thu 13 April @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm$145
In this workshop, kids will draw, sculpt and paint in a series of mindful art activities using the calming power of nature.
Kids will create a nature scene painting that will become a place they can focus on to help them self-regulate and calm down when they face challenges.
They will spend the morning doing drawing, watercolour and creative clay activities to practice mindfulness. This will develop their ability to focus and concentrate.
In the afternoon they will plan and create their nature scene, their painted representation of a place to focus to calm down. This may be a real or imaginary place and can be hung in their special space to remind them of the mindfulness techniques long after the paint dries.
Kids will learn several mindful techniques and you will receive a worksheet and access to online video so that you can support your child ability to self-regulate their emotions.
