Arts and Crafts for Mental Wellbeing - Children Age 7-12

In this ongoing Art & Wellbeing For Kids course, students will engage in exercises in drawing, painting, collage, and more. These art projects will develop their artistic abilities, while helping them develop tools to maintain mental wellbeing. Your student will create art that they're proud of, and along the way learn tools to express their emotions, reflect on their feelings, and build their confidence. All abilities and skills are welcome! This class should leave your student feeling accomplished and relaxed each week.

The art projects I lead are specifically designed to develop self esteem, self reflection, a diverse emotions vocabulary, and resilience. My teaching methodology is a unique blend of teaching technical art skills with a focus on reflective processes. The creative process helps children express themselves in a non-verbal medium that reflects their emotional state. Engagement with the arts has also been proven to increase confidence and self esteem. I cultivate a safe and supportive learning environment in which students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing with the group.

In each live class meeting, I will go step-by-step through the art project. Students will have the chance to ask me questions if needed and also have the chance to share their artwork with the class once it is complete. Students are encouraged to work within a dedicated sketchbook to create a portfolio of artwork.

Students can join this on-going class at any time and will begin working in their sketchbook during their first class with me. Students will have the opportunity to interact with me during class for support as needed, as well as talk and share with other students.

Extra information

About Me

Hi,

I teach art and wellbeing, and I am currently training to be a licensed art therapist. I also have a degree in illustration and a background in mental health services. I teach art classes for children that focus on using the creative process as a tool for emotional wellbeing. I have experience working in elementary schools with children, specializing in supporting students with autism, ADHD, and other learning disabilities. As well as leading art workshops for children, I have also lead art workshops for adults with disabilities. I believe art is a powerful communication device and therapeutic tool, for people of all ages and abilities. I recently completed an 8 hour training on Art Based Telehealth, focused on using art as a tool for wellbeing with clients based virtually over Zoom.
A little more on me... I'm from California but I currently live in London, where I study! I love to travel and explore the world. London is a wonderful place to do that, so I count my lucky stars. I have a big family, so I do spend a lot of time on Zoom and FaceTime! In my free time I love going to art museums, reading, and being outdoors as much as possible. I'm also a vegan and BIG animal lover.

The most important thing you can learn about me though is that I love to learn and love to teach! I hope to see you in class!

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

Andrea
Art History: from Altamira to the 20th century
I am a university graduate in Art History and I teach art history classes online or at home, at the student's preference, in Madrid. My classes are aimed at anyone who wishes to reinforce, review, organize or expand their knowledge of art history, particularly those students who are resisting the subject in high school. The contents that I will teach are organized chronologically and I will base myself, in addition to my own knowledge acquired in my degree and master's degree, on a bibliography that is as complete and updated as possible. The classes will be structured in three parts: the first, theoretical, where I will explain the matter to be treated in said class; the second, more practical, where I will carry out a series of practical exercises with the student; and the third, questions and comments. All this following a light and pleasant dynamic, being flexible, always attending and adapting to the specific needs and requests of the student. One of my passions is to teach others to look, as they have taught me, so I enjoy sharing my knowledge with the students in whom I hope to inspire a desire to know.

Pattern Making and Sewing Classes Women's wear, Home Textile
With so many things selling outside, still many times it doesn't quite fit our taste and style. With sewing and pattern making skills you can bring anything you've imagined to reality. With good sewing skills you can upscale any DIY project and make it look like you just purchased it at the designers boutique. Learning pattern making allows you to develop any garment from scratch and be sure that nobody has anything like this. I'm adjusting to any level of knowledge from the beginner to advanced. Sharing all the techniques and tricks I know. If you think that you are a hard learner I have a lot of patience and always will find the way to explain everything till I absolutely sure you understand. I'm a practicing fashion designer and have more then 10 years experience of teaching groups and in private.
