Tackling Anxiety and Stress through Arts and Mindfulness

Arts Express™ has developed THE T.A.S.A.M. program that will use our creative arts
education approach and an expert in child development to help your stressed or anxious
child develop lifelong strategies and tools that will effectively eliminate the stigma and
discomfort of these Mental Health issues for years to come.
Early intervention and creating a safe and nurturing environment where the child feels
protected, understood, and in control is the key to tackling these issues.





  • Identifying the seriousness of your child’s anxiety and stress levels
  • Knowing when to seek professional help
  • Tools to use to help alleviate minor everyday anxieties and stress
  • Kid-friendly approach to developing useful strategies
  • Leading by example
  • The importance of exercise
  • Communicating with your anxious child without frustration
  • Developing a safe structure within the home environment





1. A 2-hour long parent discussion which will be led by a child development expert and will cover strategies and tips that will effectively help parents deal with shy, anxious, or stressed children.
2. A visual arts workshop for the students which will allow the child to tap into their creative selves in a safe and nurturing environment. The children will be encouraged to use the individual drawings as a way to connect with their emotions.
3. A mindful movement class in which the students will learn breathing techniques and simple poses to be used in the future as a tool to relieve stress and anxiety.
4. A drama workshop that uses role play to explore our different emotions and how they affect our mood, movement and reaction to situations.
5. A literacy storytelling session on mental health featuring the story, “Milton’s Secret”.

T.A.S.A.M. Aims to help children suffering from anxiety and stress to develop lifelong strategies and tools.

Good afternoon! I would like to tell you what a fantastic presentation that was at Bowmore last night. Such wonderful information, and many many great coping strategies.  With someone with a diagnosis of anxiety and panic disorder, I am especially interested in mental health issues, and to help others as best I can. As well, as a teacher, I have a vested interest in helping my many students struggling with anxiety and other disorders.

“Last Thursday went wonderfully!!!  The teachers and students had all great things to say.  As well the parent portion had a great turn out (for our little school J).”
Jen. C- Parent Council Member

“Firstly, I wanted to say how great the presentation was. The content was excellent and the delivery and personal stories and examples, really made the presentation memorable. The audience’s interest was held from the start to finish, which, as a presenter myself, I know is very difficult to do, especially over 2 long hours. The presenter was excellent.”
“Secondly, I walked away from the presentation thinking that all parents, no matter their child’s level of anxiety, would benefit from it. A lot of what the presentation dealt with was teaching kids how to be independent, cope with challenges and how we as parents can facilitate it all.”
