Art is Essential: Simple Projects for Easing Anxiety + Engaging the Imagination

Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom


About this FieldTrip

Art is essential. It is essential to our imaginations and to our souls – especially during uncertain times. Creating gives us the control to process and heal.

During this FieldTrip, participants will make art together and will learn the powerful tool art can be in supporting mental and emotional health. Participants will learn simple projects, with materials used at home, to jump-start artistic and creative play. These projects can be used as tools to check in with ourselves and build community with those we are sheltered with. Each project is guided by reflection questions to build self-awareness and promote personal growth.

Participants will leave with a knowledge of projects to do whenever they need. These projects can be easily translated for any youth in the participant’s life.
