Explore how living more than a year into the global pandemic has affected your life with this hands-on art journaling session for teens!

About this Event

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, everyday life has changed -- especially for young people.

After more than a year of social distancing and remote learning, it’s hard not to get stuck in a loop of sadness and anxiety or to feel lonelier than usual. But art journaling and creativity can ease the worry and help you process and express the heaviness the pandemic has had on your life.

Join CMATO and CReATE STUDIO for Virtual Family Art Day: Teen Edition, as we dive into art journaling to explore how it feels to be a teenager during a pandemic. Participants will consider how they spend their time, what worries them and what has brought them happiness during a most unusual period in their lives, then channel their thoughts and feelings into words, drawing, sketching and painting. It’s a fun, explorative and stress-free session designed especially for teens. No previous art journaling or art experience is required -- your imagination and your journal will lead the way! Recommended ages: 12-18, and family members are welcome to attend!

Admission to Virtual Family Art Day: Teen Edition is free but preregistration is required.
