Expressive Art and Creative Play is the fusion of art and play. It harnesses the potential of children to discover new knowledge through creative experimentation. It gives children opportunities to express themselves in an encouraging and supportive environment. Last April 25, Artist Madhouse has conducted Expressive Art and Creative Play workshop with children at Mulberry Kids Preschool with the theme “Superhero in me”.

When we are restless and anxious we become irritable causing unlikely behavior towards others. Ma. Lourdes “Honey” A. Carandang, a well known Filipino psychologist, expressed that rest is a moral obligation. She gave a talk entitled How to Achieve B.A.L.A.N.C.E. and Prevent Burnout last September 13, 2014 at Club Filipino. Carers from different fields have come together including doctors, nurses, social workers, professors, parents, volunteers and representatives from different organizations. Dra. Honey used the acronym B.A.L.A.N.C.E. to be easily reminded of the key points in caring for ourselves as we care for other. See Details “Self-Care and Caring for Others”
Expressive arts encapsulates different disciplines of art including performance art. It can also be used as a tool for encouraging resiliency and molding the society. I have discovered this in an eye-opening experience last September 12, 2014, during the Talk on Expressive Arts and Psychology. It was conducted by Dr. Amihan Bonifacio-Ramolete, Chair and Associate Professor at UP Department of Speech Communication & Theatre Arts and Company Manager of Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas. Together with the Sipat Lawin Ensemble, a contemporary performance group exploring and creating new approaches and new works for the theater. See Details “Creative Expression to Expanding Perception”
