Art Helps Teens with Depression

Posted by Anna Kogan on 11/6/2017

As Hillview gears up for 6 lessons on mindfulness, I came across this article from Superintendent Burmeister. Art is one of those personal subjects that allows students to express themselves, slow down and be mindful. It helps students cope with issues they may be facing and helps them talk about those issues through their art. Here is a link to the KQED article.

The article shows how important art can be in teens' lives. Students are so lucky to have so many opportunities for art at Hillview and I feel pretty lucky to teach them. :)
