Children’s Feelings Are a Work of Art
Children's Feelings Are a Work of Art is an activity that educates, raises awareness, and reduces the stigma surrounding children's mental health. Students learn about feelings are then encouraged to express themselves in a healthy way through art.
Artwork is displayed in the community to celebrate participating students and encourage healthy conversations about mental health.

Fatima, age 17
"Sometimes music helps us tune out from our problems. It helps us communicate and express our feelings when we are lost for words. When we are upset we turn to something that we can relate to. Sometimes we get so caught up in our emotions we forget about the small things that bring us joy."
Face of emotions
Dalecia, age 15
"My art piece is about how people want to show their true emotions but hide it behind the fake ones. It shows in the picture that she is smiling but has a tear on her face."
James, age 6
"When I feel happy I like to give my friends high fives."
