At Thrive we believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience and connect with others. Building Better Art programs teach and support children’s wellbeing.

Each art project is designed to be made over a course of 1-2 weeks. The aim of each project is to encourage and support your child to experiment using a variety of art materials. It is through the process of experimenting that your child will be taught art skills and processes as well as social emotional skills that will foster their resilience and belief in themselves. Children are encouraged to make decisions and take risks when experimenting with the art materials.

At Thrive we provide a safe, fun and relaxed space for children to create and experiment. Resilience is fostered in the program in a number of ways. When children make a mistake when they are drawing or creating they may experience feelings such as frustration and disappointment. At Thrive we allow the children to experience these feelings and empathize with them and regard these times as teachable moments. The children will be emotionally coached to learn strategies for coping with frustration and other emotions that may arise and will be encouraged to keep on persisting even when they might find things hard. By coaching them through such situations and encouraging them to persist and work through challenges they will feel a sense of pride in themselves.

Thrive will support your child on their artistic journey, contribute to developing your child’s resilience and will celebrate their successes along the way.
