A picture is worth a thousand words
As children head back to school this month, some of you - the lucky ones - will be the recipients of artwork coming home in backpacks. Or maybe you'll see artwork on the bulletin boards at school. Maybe you encourage your child to make art at home. Art is an important part of Roots of Empathy because art expresses unsaid emotions and we can learn from it. We've put together an art slideshow, with explanations, where children finished the sentence "I felt proud when...." We wanted them to reflect on a time when they felt intrinsic pride, when they did something that made them feel proud of their character, even if it was invisible to others. Enjoy the show!
