Social Emotional Learning Workshop (Ages 6 and Up)
Sat, March 9th at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is an educational framework to help foster social skills that develop and maintain healthy relationships with self and others. The SEL curriculum focuses on recognizing and managing emotions, setting positive goals, demonstrating caring and concern for self and others, and maintaining positive relationships. SEL at NOMA helps to connect these skills with the artists and artworks in the museum’s permanent collection or featured in special exhibitions. Designed for children ages 6 and up, NOMA’s SEL workshop includes an art-making activity, close looking at an object in the collection, storytime, and a movement-based activity. SEL workshops are led and produced in partnership with NOMA’s Teen Art Council (TAC), a cohort of creative high school students and youth leaders who serve as ambassadors for the museum.
Pre-registration encouraged. Free with museum admission.
