We are an art therapy based non-profit organization that empowers impoverished children through the use of art. We use therapeutic art experiences to give the children the opportunity to visualize their dreams outside of their current circumstances. This board consists of pins that explain the differences between an Art activity vs. Art Therapy, how art therapy accesses and affects the brain, and the psychology behind why art therapy is a healthy way for children to cope with stress and trauma.

Art Techniques to help kids - and adults - deal with difficult emotions

Coping with Strong Emotions… through Art

Anger that feels like it will explode out of you. Fear so strong you can't breath. Sadness that feels like it has no end. Strong emotions are challenging even for the most well-adjusted adult to handle. So much more so for kids! But we can help. We can teach our children coping techniques while they are young that will assist them throughout their lives.
