Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

We are DC public school social workers, and we are working with a group of students on a mural project. This will be a therapeutic group that will focus on healing and social emotional learning through the process of making art. Our high school and middle school students who will be participating in this group have experienced loss and trauma and will utilize the group as a way to work through their trauma and or loss. During the creation of this mural, we aspire to help our students process and heal through self-expression and exploration. At the end of the groups, each student will receive an art kit as a way to encourage their continued use of art as a coping strategy.

Grades 9-12
