Art Mentor

Earlier in the year I was approached by a Masters student studying Education who is writing their thesis focusing on the phenomenon of student learning within the context of adversity. Trauma can interfere with the healthy and normal development of academic and cognitive skills needed for students to succeed in school. 

They asked me to assist them in the creation of an altered book that would visually represent their experiences of adversity as a teaching aid for the classroom to provide a better understanding into the academic failure and struggle that children can encounter. 

We are currently exploring different options on how to represent the visual journey. It is anticipated that the altered book will be completed by the end of the year, with a printable version available for the school curriculum available shortly thereafter.
