Using Art to Alleviate Stress Register
This free, interactive virtual workshop will focus on hands-on ways caretakers can use visual art to help alleviate stress and anxiety for the young people in their lives. The workshop will explore how stress can impact a young person’s behaviors, the importance of play, and why the arts can be essential in transforming traumatic experiences. There will be a short, facilitator led presentation, hands-on art making activity, group reflections, and fun.
Participants are encouraged to have some basic art materials available to use during the workshop (markers, crayons, and/or colored pencils are excellent options).
