CLAIMING FACE curriculum is designed to support everyone, but especially children to engage with creativity in order to know their selves and be empowered to live their best lives. It is not about art, although art is made. It is about process. It is about life. After 15 years working with students and educators, award-winning multicultural children's book artist, author and educator, Maya Christina Gonzalez brings her CLAIMING FACE curriculum into singular focus. Through exploration of the philosophy and its development, imagination exercises and questions, resource materials for art and literacy, as well as an entire school year of self-portrait projects, Maya lays out a feast of creative involvement to support first the educator and then the student in the classroom. This is an excellent tool to support higher thinking, strong self esteem, life skills, cultural diversity, ESL education and a lifelong connection to creativity.
