 National Crayon Day, March 31st, 2017


Brush Strokes Art Therapy is doing a special project for National Crayon Day at my local charter school.


For my son and daughter's classroom, we are doing a special project and lesson to celebrate National Crayon Day. The classroom has cleaned out their crayon boxes/pencil boxes and have collected all of their broken and tiny crayon pieces for recycling.  The broken pieces have been melted down using Crayola's Crayon Factory to make new crayons and the paper wrappers have been added to the paper recylcing bin.


All childen participating in the project will receive new crayons made from their old broken crayons, a new 8 ct Crayola crayon box, and a special homemade rubber band/crayon keychain (made by Sonia) as an incentive to reaching their Accelerated Reader (AR) goal in class.

The class will also receive a mini history lesson about crayons and Crayola to learn about the importance of developing their own creativity and creative self-expression.

THANK YOU!


Thank you to Camp Erin for inviting me back for another great season of 2017!


This spring we start off on March 24-26th in Homestead, FL and then head back to Homestead, Fl in the fall for October 20-22nd, 2017. I look forward to another year of amazing art therapy work helping kids process through their grief issues using art.  We will do the mask and luminary project again this year! 


The kids fully embrace the art therapy process and it is my pleasure working with you again this year!



If you know of a child ages 5-17 that is having a difficult time processing their grief, please contact Catholic Hospice, Miami at 305-351-7026, to discuss possibly attending a FREE overnight, weekend children's grief camp (with Art Therapy!)
