Early Childhood Social Emotional Learning: Expression Through the Arts
April 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Arts educators seek to build social and emotional learning (SEL) skills to help their students appreciate the nuances of art, often by attending to the way emotions are expressed in painting, sculpture, drawing, music, and dance. Observing, analyzing, and understanding art and its production and context builds many SEL competencies. Join us to learn ways and resources to help kids develop a strong emotional toolkit and enable them to better able to handle the ups and downs of life. Featuring content from KET, PBS KIDS and others, this session will focus on media tools that can be used to teach the youngest learners skills like patience, dealing with frustration, and how to understand and manage their feelings using the arts.
Target Audience: Educators PreK-3rd grade
