Mindfulness and Art Classes
AwareHouse is a space of acceptance, of learning perseverance, and of integrity. It is where kids can come learn how to express themselves creatively, and learn how to think. It is where everyone can practice peace.
It is a place to connect with peers. This is not "instead of" homeschooling, or traditional school, or therapy. This is time for your child to learn more about him or herself through work with the arts.
AwareHouse offers fine art lessons to the youth of Chatham-Kent in a safe, positive, and understanding environment. Students are encouraged to take risks only after they are comfortable enough to reap the rewards of those risks.
A typical 3-hour session would include a 20-minute meditation, followed by allowing students to work in the format they choose.
This could include printmaking, painting, drawing, using pastels, ink, spray paint, collage, pencils, aquarelle, art journaling, and other media.
Students are encouraged to try new things and make mistakes because mistakes can become glorious wins.
Through our work at AwareHouse, your child can be expected to grow emotionally in many ways. This might include being more mindful, more creative, better able to resolve conflict or express positive and negative emotions better.
AwareHouse will give your child something to look forward to. Practicing gratitude and meditation will give your child a bigger perspective on the world around her or him.
Growing up is hard enough without a break now and then to breathe and be yourself.
There is nothing that brings people together like the fear of being creative!
