family art time for creative connection
This 90-minute, weekly family program has been successfully piloted in the El Monte City School District’s Jeff Seymour Family Center. Parents, or other caregivers, may participate with their children or alone.
Each week features an art activity with a different theme to help adult members of a family connect with their children or grandchildren. The instructions for each activity, which include specific goals for social-emotional skill building, are printed on an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper for families to take home. Most activities are appropriate for all ages; if not, instructions on adaptations for different age groups are included.
For this project, activity instructions are available in Spanish and volunteer interpreters attend each weekly session as well.
