I have a special education teacher who is desperate for assistance with
helping her middle school charges with ANGER Management.
I include Betty Clarks project on analog portraits, using line and
pencil pressure, to create and express emotions and turn it into an
abstract painting. This project gives all my students a chance to
express their own personalities and how another person affects their
lives without others knowing what the lines and gestures really
represent-unless they chose to tell someone the meanings. I get most of
her students in my class throughout the school year already.
My question to this most knowledgeable curriculum group is "What types
of art projects could she implement in her special ed classroom that
would assist these middle school children in dealing with their anger?"
