The Emotional Learning Cards are a unique and beautifully designed set of cards featuring artwork by 20 contemporary artists alongside sets of questions and activities to stimulate creative exploration of emotions and identity in young people. They are an encouragement for children to explore their feelings and meet with contemporary art. Produced by Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) in partnership with educational charity A Space. The first set How do you feel? is aimed at primary age, (though can be used by anyone) and the new second set, Who are you? Where are you going?’ is suitable for use with all ages. Our identities are ever changing and are rooted in social and emotional histories. They are revealed or hidden in our personal and cultural belief systems, values and attitudes. By mapping these histories, we are increasing our insight into who we are and where we come from, enabling us to make more informed decisions over where we are going and what we want from our lives and relationships”. If you’ve read Daniel Goleman’s essay Emotional Intelligence, you’ll agree that this can only be good for our children’s development. The Emotional Learning Cards are available at www.iniva.org – £12.95 each or £20 for both sets.
