We have continued to do a new style of self portrait every month.
This month we have been focusing on how to express and name feelings. Many of our morning meetings have revolved around the idea that there are no bad emotions. We simply feel the way we feel. It is the actions we choose to that may or may not be positive. It is important for us to be able to verbalize how we feel to help others understand what we need.
Students were asked to paint the emotion they were experiencing at the easel. They were to pick images, shapes, and colors that they felt demonstrated that feeling best.
