Gourd Art Making Class
Art Active is a non-profit organization that provides art education through mindfulness to South Los Angeles youth. One of our programs, is the Gourd Art Making Class, which encourages creativity and mindfulness in youth as they create works of art. This program focuses on helping youth develop skills in visual and creative expression, communication, problem solving, and teamwork, as well as providing a safe space for learning about mindfulness and self-reflection.
Through Art Active’s Ceramic Art Making Class, children in the local community have the opportunity to learn how to paint pottery. Not only is this a fun and creative activity, but it has several potential benefits for kids such as improved motor skills, increased creativity and self-expression, and enhanced problem solving and communication skills. The class also teaches children mindfulness as they learn how to practice restorative breathing and relaxation techniques.
