Art Extension Activities

These activities come from our curricula and each complements a page from one of our therapeutic activity books. Along with art-making, each video walks you through supportive emotional goals, how to lead the activity, and prompted discussion questions to use in practice.

The Key to Success

Many kids can have depthful experiences with creative expression on their own, but when paired with a trusted adult, Art with Heart programming can become transformational, allowing kids to use nonverbal mediums to find expression for what they can’t say.
Draw It Out is empowering and engaging and is one of only a few books that provides truly inspiring prompts for children challenged by grief, loss, and trauma.
