Being a teen can be challenging, especially during a pandemic. This virtual workshop, based on the topic of Mental Health, will explore a creative outlet by using collage. Shannah will give some background of her own history of depression and anxiety to help open up communication and use of language. Students will give a visual representation of some mental health terms that can help normalize these feelings. By working in a group/zoom environment, her goal as a teacher is to let teens know that they are not alone in the way their minds work and struggles they may have. A kit containing collage materials and pins will be mailed to participants prior to the class and is included in the fee.

This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
