Using art to nurture during the return to school

Thank you for the SWAN course and for the Supporting Bereaved Children course – I appreciated the simplicity of the approach and delivery at this tricky time, it made it easier for me to digest. I am an Art teacher/specialist in a Primary setting and I am aware that creating art and mindful creative activities will help when we return to school. Could you design a course around the basics of using art in this way? I am very aware that I am not an Art or Play therapist and do not want to find myself, or my colleagues, in a situation that we are not experienced or trained to deal with – but I do want to know how to use art in a more supportive way (as well as making sure the children have some arty fun when we get back!). I would also appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of any obvious sources regarding this. Thank you and with all best wishes, SH.

  1. Great suggestion. I’ve commissioned some work re play, but I think art would be a fab session to run too. I’m on the case…

    1. Thank you Pooky, I think this will be very popular and we are very excited about it at school already! I look forward to taking the course.
