Art Appreciation and Creation, Expressing Feelings
Using Art to Express Feelings
Some kids are talkers and are quite good at expressing their emotions verbally. Other children will show you how they're feeling through their art and play. Does your child play pretend, acting out a scene from daily life that he is trying to process? Or perhaps the artwork he created shows what he is processing on the inside. Observe what he's making and ask him to tell you about it to gain some insight into how he's feeling.
