My Tree of Joy Watercolor Art: What Makes You Happy?
In this one-time class, learners will brainstorm and think of things that make them happy. Young artists will trace their hands to represent a trunk of a tree and will write their joys on their tree.
This is a positive and relaxing art activity for learners to recognize their inner talents and the things that bring them joy. Learners will first greet and introduce themselves at the beginning of class. Next, we will share 10 things that make us happy. These can include personal strengths, enjoyable activities, and supportive people. Young artists are free to ask questions if needed along the way. During class, the teacher will use two cameras so that learners can follow along. No drawing...
The objective of this art activity is for learners to identify their strengths, things they love, and supportive people in their lives. Listing their joys helps activate the more cognitive aspects of the brain, and using their own hand as part of the art helps them feel connected to their work and makes it more meaningful.
I encourage learners to share their “Tree of Joy” with their parents and display their artwork somewhere they can see it so that they can appreciate their inner talents and support system.
