COLLAGES of CALM

"Collages of Calm" FOV's newest program, provides an avenue for participants to calm and center themselves through the use of visual imagery and writing. By choosing and collating colors, images, and text that evoke feelings of calmness, students go through a process of visual stimulation and thought that can lead to patience and understanding. Journals serve as a tool to keep track of ideas and feelings as they emerge and develop; young people begin to define their stories as they create their collages, blending word and image in the search for calm.
