Arts Impact has designed arts-based Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programs that align with Ohio Department of Education curriculum standards in both SEL and Fine Arts.

Social and emotional learning is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Family Engagement

Parents, students, and family members participate in hands-on, arts-based activities that are related to an SEL theme. These workshops engage families, help show how learning through the arts supports student achievement, and promote school as a family-friendly community partner.
