Art Sphere Inc. has implemented conflict resolution art workshops at over 20 sites-in churches, classrooms, and recreation centers-for various age groups. These programs teach anger awareness and management techniques. Students explore these topics through personal profiles, studying and sketching cross sections of the brain, and “emotion” traffic lights.
Through art, students enjoy learning to problem-solve and increase their coping skills in scenarios where they may usually fight. Conflict resolution art gives youth powerful tools to anticipate situations to avoid, positive affirmations for increasing self esteem, and tools for self-improvement and goal achievement.
By incorporating visual tools, short stories, breathing exercises, role play, and humor, students work through fears, anxieties, and anger towards a more positive and productive self!

There are people who continuously look for conflict. Walk away; the battle they are fighting isn’t with you, it’s with themselves.~Unknown
