The Feelings Artbook
For many children, drawing is a more pleasurable activity than writing. Many individuals also find that communicating and expressing feelings, emotions etc. via visual means is easier than using words.
These activities and worksheets use drawing as the basis for exploring emotional issues and promoting children's emotional literacy. The book is intended for anyone who spends time with children, including teachers, learning mentors, therapists and parents.
It is organised into three sections:
- Empathy The instructions for activities include a clearly stated aim, a suggested outline of how to conduct the activity and two optional follow-on ideas. Flexibility is central to the design: the activities can stand alone or be incorporated into an emotional literacy programme.
