Visual art is our first language, which connects us to how we first began to understand the world. In this workshop, learn how visual art and creativity can engage the body, brain, and hearts of educators and students alike—and why this connection is critical for thriving mental health. Be inspired with visual art project examples that will get your creative juices flowing. Discover how to deepen the meaning of the artistic process and inspire students to think outside-the-box in all areas of their lives.
