About Art Camp
Welcome to Art Camp CO! Kids today are going through a lot. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised concern and awareness about the mental health of young people. However, most of the reporting has shown that the pandemic may represent just the tip of a mental health iceberg that we have been ignoring for a long time. The statistics are overwhelming and reveal a staggering need for our young adults to learn how to manage the world today. Art for Mindfulness is a small but mighty way to introduce simple, mindfulness activities that can promote brain health and flexible thinking, as well as reduce stress and anxiety. Art is already a natural easy to practice mindfulness. Mindful Art (sometimes called Process Art) is the act of creating art as a way to surrender to the present moment. With this type of art, we are not striving for a particular outcome or even to make something that looks “good.” We are simply allowing ourselves the space to be creative. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of drawing and journaling activities to develop your own creative self care routine. Through experimentation, risk taking, and breaking some “art” rules, we will learn simple mindful art practices that promote relaxation, stress relief, and an increased sense of well-being. In collaboration with art activities, we will also cover the following: - What Mindfulness is and the Science behind it. - The Benefits of Mindfulness - A look at Emotions - An Introduction to BreathWork - How Perfectionism only makes us feel inadequate - And how you don’t need fancy art supplies to have fun doing art! “Pay attention to what you pay attention to.” - Amy Krouse Rosenthal *This camp is specifically tailored for kids aged 10-12 (4th-6th grade)* Camp will be limited to 8 students
