Young children need time to expand their understanding of the world through hands-on, self-directed learning. During times of stress, “Big Feeling Art” provides an even higher return on investment. When typical children are stressed, the need for safe, soothing and expressive sensory experiences also increases. Pandemic stress has children and adults alike feel less in control than ever before.

There’s no better time than now to provide big feeling art experiences to help children and families develop greater resiliency.

I know you have stories of stressed out children! Let’s get together, review trauma theory, make art, share our experiences in small break out rooms, and practice putting trauma theory into actionable steps that help young children deal with stress in this challenging pandemic world.
