Help bring Art to Self to the classroom!
Did you know that teachers across the country have been using Art to Self in the classroom? From Kindergarten to 8th grade classrooms, the Art to Self coloring book has helped students explore, discuss and build self-confidence.
One teacher, Mr. Sandoval-Lung, describes his experience using the Art to Self coloring books with his middle school students:
“The kids LOVE the books. We use them every Monday during homeroom (or when the need arises). We flip through the book and find a page that ‘speaks’ to us. We write about what that page means to us at that moment and then we can color/decorate. Afterwards, some students volunteer to share their art and why they chose it.”
“My students need this Art to Self coloring book as a discussion starter during our weekly Seminar sessions. It is a great addition to our leadership and life skill lessons we’ve been implementing all year… This rambunctious group of 11-12 year olds are always ready to learn something new. They do not come from the best of circumstances, getting to school can be a struggle, but they know once inside these walls they are expected to be ready to participate.”
By using simple cartoons to illustrate emotional concepts, Art to Self helps students reflect on, process and discuss their emotions in an easy, approachable way. Covering topics like self-worth, doubt, fear, personal growth, individuality and self-acceptance, the Art to Self coloring book is a powerful companion for any classroom!
TEACHERS – GET ART TO SELF DONATED TO YOUR CLASSROOM!
Would you like to use Art to Self in the classroom? Send me an email Steph@ArtToSelf.com and let me know how you would use Art to Self in the classroom and why a donated box of books would help! Priority is given to classrooms that demonstrate significant need (i.e. Title I schools, classrooms with a lack of funding, classrooms servings students with special needs, etc.). No matter who you serve, please reach out! I hope to bring Art to Self to classrooms all around the United States.
Want to help bring Art to Self to more students? Donate today!
My goal this year is to bring Art to Self to 100 classrooms around the country. For every $150 raised, we can supply an entire classroom (up to 30 students) with Art to Self coloring books and help them explore and build self confidence. No matter how much you choose to donate, every bit helps – and 100% of what you contribute goes towards a classroom in need!
Even if you can’t make a donation, please consider sharing Art to Self with a teacher who could benefit from using it in the classroom. And as always, thank you for the support and love!
