Focusing on the Future
A relational art project with fourth grade students
Emily Szymanski and Emily Gleeson
Our objective was to reach out to a low-income school in St. John’s county, seeking to get fourth grade students to think positively about their futures. We wanted to help them set goals, and more importantly, get to reflect on how the choices that they make now will affect them in the future.
“Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.”
—Art Therapy Association, 2013
