Simple Techniques for Lasting, Meaningful Results
You don't have to feel like you're constantly at your wit's end.
You don't have to struggle with teaching your children or students self-control.
You don't have to feel guilty for losing your cool and saying things out of exasperation.
There's an easier way to help kids develop emotional literacy—and we'll teach you the tools and techniques to do it!
Often times we think we need to change our children, but if you want a more peaceful, meaningful relationship with them, we need to change our way of thinking and our approach to child behavior. It starts here.
When you register for the 4-Part Masterclass: Using Art Journals For Emotional Literacy you'll develop emotional literacy through art journaling and creating art. You'll also receive a supply list and exclusive workbook to help you dive deeper and reteach what you've learned to your kids.
Teachers may also receive 1 Professional Development hour per class (for a certificate of 4 PD hours total upon completion of the full masterclass).
We truly believe emotional literacy is essential for children to develop into healthy individuals, and we want to be able to get this information into as many hands as possible.
