Mixed Media Emotional Creatures (Ages 6–8)
What color is your joy? What does your frustration look like? In this introspective class, we will explore our feelings by drawing them as monsters and other creatures. Each day, we’ll focus on a different emotion, talk about when we have felt it in our lives, and use our imaginations to draw that emotion.
