Emotional Release Through Crumple Art

As written by Orlando, FL Program Director, Cindy Valentin.


In most social settings, whether it be school, play, work, or with friends, expressing anger or depression is seen as unrestrained, or off-putting behavior. However, feeling these emotions and dealing with these emotions are two different situations. Children who express their anger and anxieties in school or social situations  are quickly labeled as troubled or misbehaved. With this curriculum project, we challenged the children to take on their emotions and relive their frustrations through their art projects.
