Course Description:
In this online class, students will practice different forms of art to create artful expressions and then bind their own journal. Students will explore their feelings through journaling to increase comfort with creative writing, to self-regulate, and for stress reduction.

For a young person, varying emotions can be intense. Channeling these feelings to build resiliency can be challenging. The act of creating has been proven to reduce physical and emotional effects of illnesses and to encourage self-expression, communication, social interactions and self-discovery. Pablo Picasso once said: “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”   Art journaling is just one of many ways to wash off the dust of life. With an art journal, a child can create a safe place to explore their feelings without judgment, constraints or guidelines. The only limitations are a child’s imagination – and the size of the journal.

There will be two material pick ups. One prior to the first session and the second after the fourth class.

  • Train an AI system from raw data and use it to build cool applications.
  • How to improve an AI with better data
  • How to measure and tune the performance of different AI algorithms to make them better

Did you know Jedis are Yogis?

Yogis have a superpower called mindfulness. Yoga teaches us to be mindful of our body and breath. Yoga’s benefits are immense. There are numerous physical benefits such as increased strength and flexibility. Practicing yoga poses also develops patience and concentration. Most importantly, the connection between mind and body are deepened in the practice of yoga. Stress is greatly reduced with a regular yoga practice. We are faced with an ever-changing world. Yoga gives us the tools to cope with their emotions and feel in control of ourselves.

Each class we will explore principles of yoga like nonviolence, compassion, truthfulness, determination and inner peace. These are big ideas that play a role in our fast-paced lives. Yoga gives us the ability to approach these big concepts through asana (yoga poses) and pranayama (breathing exercises). We will also use part of our time to journal and reflect on our practice. My hope is that your children find a sense of empowerment which sparks joy and lifelong desire to live a balanced life.
