Summer School - Crafting Your Best Self
June - Assertiveness
Our emotional intelligence topic for June is "Assertiveness," which will be explored through the art of painting. Clients will be introduced to primary colors and learn how to use them to create other colors. We will then associate colors with emotions and encourage clients to paint colors on a canvas in order to share their view of themselves. This interaction encourages engaging conversation with the Family Development Case Manager, as well as provides an insight of other areas of interest or concern.
July - Gratitude
For the month of July our topic will be "Gratitude," with t-shirt design as the craft. T-shirt design encourages creativity in addition to providing a a practical way to display art.
August - Mindfulness
For the month of August the topic will be "Mindfulness," featuring the long-time favorite craft, latch hook. Latch hook encourages attention to detail and focus on specific outlines and colors.
September - Defining Emotional Intelligence and its Significance
For the month of September the topic is "Defining Emotional Intelligence and its Significance." The craft will be decorating with beads, providing an intricate way of defining specific decorative ideas.
October - Relaxation Techniques
In our final month of the series, we will focus on relaxation techniques and utilize the craft of knitting as a form of relaxation.
