We are excited to announce a three-day, arts-integrated Self As Super Hero Workshop! Hosted by AHC Executive Director and author Amana Harris, this event will guide participants through the inspiring "Self As Super Hero Book: Handbook for Creating the Life Size Self Portrait" curriculum.
This workshop is for inspiring Superheroes of all ages.
Self As Super Hero has taken hundreds of children, youth, and adults through a journey of self-exploration, family and cultural research, societal assessment, and development of aesthetic tools for artistic creation. An ArtEsteem program, Self As Super Hero assists educators, community members, parents, and students in developing creative and engaging content to building knowledge and emotional, social, academic and intellectual skills. We looking forward to sharing this empowering experience with you.
ArtEsteem is Attitudinal Healing Connection’s award-winning art and literacy program that develops creative, engaged, and successful children and youth through building knowledge and emotional, social, academic and intellectual skills. Founded in 1995, ArtEsteem engages students and supports their positive development – body, mind, and heart. Participants discover how to self-reflect and dream, as well as focus on their tasks and “follow through” by completing their art projects. Our methods guide students to think practically about the world and their abilities to manifest positive and creative outcomes. We ask participants to re-define the self as a hero with embodied superpowers to create a more loving and peaceful world.
Superheroes imagined by students have been used as the conceptual designs and inspiration for the Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project.
