"What an innovative way to connect emotions with colors, music and movement. The session had the same spunk as Camp Galileo and the small size of the group truly allowed campers to connect with each other and share their creations!"
-- Sarah Keasler, Manhattan Beach, CA

What You'll Do

Turn your emotions inside out by expressing them in art. BE VISIONARY as you brainstorm what an emotion might look like in lines, shapes or colors. Listen to emotive music as you create a series of abstract drawings to express specific sentiments—happy, sad, angry, peaceful, silly—then draw inspiration from what you’re feeling to make a unique mixed-emotion masterpiece.

What You'll Need

Materials
  • 6 sheets of standard-size white paper
  • 1 set of coloring tools (crayons, colored pencils or markers)
Technology
  • Computer or tablet with speaker and camera –
  • Internet access – Zoom application installed
    • Signed in with your child’s name
    • Unmuted (the instructor will manage class muting/unmuting)

What You'll Take Away arrow

  • The knowledge that emotions can be represented through art

  • An expressive drawing that captures your own distinctive mix of emotions
