Crafting conversations

How can we support our pupils to celebrate and respect difference within a wider world context?

This resource is part of our Teaching for Creativity series

In these three learning sequences, pupils explore their own emotions and expand their vocabulary around discussing their's and other people’s feelings. Drawing and sculptural exercises encourage conversations and opportunities to talk about real experiences and these activities provide a helpful way to tackle subjects which are often difficult to talk about.

Creative tasks help take the emphasis away from an embarrassing or delicate subject area, allowing space for pupils to feel safe and supported in exploring personal issues and enabling them to challenge and explore their feelings and the feelings of others. Whilst hands are busy, a mental space is created for reflections to be made without participants feeling under pressure.
