Art Therapy for Managing Stress During the School Year

School is back in session and that means earlier mornings, longer days, homework, deadlines, increased pressures of all kinds, and a general increase in stress levels for both kids and parents. As our kids do their best to learn and to adapt to all the changes that the school year brings, stress can slow down their progress. To help alleviate stress and to foster creativity for their children, parents are turning to art therapy.

Studies have shown that art time for kids helps to reduce levels of stress by calming distracted minds, providing a creative outlet of expression to process frustrations, and generating feelings of accomplishment. Referred to as art therapy, time spent in the creative space, even for only a few minutes a day, can be greatly beneficial for stress management from children of all ages.

Our Mod Paint Sticks are perfect for creating quick works of art without creating a mess. Kids can sit down, create, and quickly get back to their daily demands feeling mentally recharged. The Gel Glide Sticks are ideal for kids who are looking to put their art skills to test on a variety of surfaces, including glass or plastic. Both are available in the store now.
