there is the art of mindfulness,
and mindfulness that can be inculcated through art
“It is time for school! Now it's time for classes! Eat your dinner! Do your homework! Hurry, hurry, hurry!” How often we hear these words and wish we could slow down, breathe, and maybe hear a bird chirp or a dry leaf crackle!
Take respite, for art is a helpful way to meditate and slow down. String a bead, paint a pebble, doodle some cards… it is this slowing down and mindfulness that ultimately leads to focus, quality, and a sense of accomplishment - the end goals for this workshop.
Social Emotional Learning
Art is both an introspective process as well as a means to communicate ideas that may be difficult to convey through written or spoken language. This makes art one of the most effective ways to assess and nurture children’s learning and development. The Role of Art in SEL demonstrates how teachers and caregivers can use Art to instill social skills and provide children with a handle to deal with emotions.
This programme focuses on activities that take time and patience. Each layer of work will add depth and shape to the object created. There is also a waiting time before things are dry enough to decorate. A bit like ourselves – we are made of layers that make us who we are and we all need time to be ready for the next step. Isn't it a beautiful way to kindle fortitude in kids?
Mindfulness activities will help improve focus and attention
Children will also get to explore the characteristics of different materials, and create imaginative articles
