Building resilience through art:

A therapeutic approach

Art of the Heart sessions are specifically designed to help children work through challenges they might have with other kids or obstacles in their lives.
The aim of the group sessions is to provide a source of support for children dealing with difficult friends, anxiety or incidents of bullying.
Children use a variety of art materials through drawing, painting, constructing and sculpting to visually express their experiences and feelings in a supportive and nurturing environment. Art is a spontaneous, natural medium and a great means of communication for children. It can provide a way of unburdening the stresses in their lives.  The emphasis is on the process of creating rather than the end product. Therefore art ability is not necessary to benefit from these sessions.
Art of the Heart sessions allow children time to process and understand their situation and helps gain skills to overcome the tough times in their lives.

Topics Covered: Self perception • Managing emotions • Healthy relationships • Inner strength • Solution tools

Benefits of group work: Relaxed and non-threatening • Peer validation • Confidentiality • Group support • Sharing ideas
