Pom Pom Hanging
September 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for Bethany’s Arts & Crafts Corner on Friday, September 9th!
This art experience offers participants the opportunity to create a colorful wall hanging to cheer up their personal space. A sense of security and safety is essential for productive learning.
As the school year begins, students may feel unsettled or insecure about new schedules, classes, and teachers. Creating art to decorate their personal space, whether it be their bedroom, study space, or locker, can create a sense of familiarity and comfort. This also emphasizes their agency which is the feeling of being in charge of life and personal circumstances. It is common for trauma victims to lose confidence in their agency, as trauma often comes with a loss of control over self and surroundings. When students are confident in their agency, they are empowered to learn, advocate for themselves, and see opportunity instead of challenge.
