Abstract :
This paper discusses the development and implementation of a workshop designed for families to teach emotional intelligence skills (understanding emotions and regulating emotions) and creativity skills (idea generation and idea evaluation), using the arts as a medium (visual art, movement, and writing). Parents and children worked to practice and develop these skills together as a family. Forty-three participants (12 families; 21 children and 22 adults) attended the workshop. After six, 90-minute sessions, parents and children expressed high satisfaction with their overall workshop experience and a desire to continue learning emotion and creativity skills through similar educational opportunities. This workshop created a space in which families could support each other’s emotional development and creative skill, strengthen their relationships, and create art together.

Key words : Creativity, Emotional intelligence, Visual art, Emotions
