TOOLTip Reminder Card for Beginning Art Projects (PDF, 1 card)

Anxious kids often have difficulty expressing emotion. If they don't know their emotions, they don't know what they want. If they don't know what they want, they seldom can achieve their goals. And they, and others around them, grow frustrated by a gap in their communication. 

Encouraging small steps into art projects is a safe way to encourage emotional expression. Expressing through art can help a child to -

  • Acknowledge and validate their own emotions
  • Invite safe adults to validate their emotions
  • Translate their emotions into stating their needs
  • Bridge to assertiveness and negotiation skills
