Healthy Defense Mechanisms & How to Use Them

Portrait of a Boy

Constructing and Deconstructing Anger

Parkour: Problem Solving 101

Boys learn how to “protect” themselves in ways that are not physical, giving them tools and a game plan for when they put in situations where they do not want to fight. This can be tied in with the different pressures young boys face as they grow up, including pressures from their friends and other situations. Through these experiences boys also learn concepts of healthy masculinity and discover tools to navigate their identity with a better understanding of masculinity. am - 16096 pm - 16097

Through the art of construction, using recycled material and duct tape, the boys will explore what their own ideas of anger and violence, including the origins of anger, how anger is more acceptable in society than tears, the good side of anger and the harmful side of anger. Boys will use different types of recyclables to create a form that represents their concept of anger as well as the tools they have to manage that anger. am - 16098 pm -16099

Using mixed media (a combination of paint, manga and comic pictures and added texture) the boys are asked to create a portrait of what they think a boy is, how boys are supposed to act and what defines a boy’s strength. During this workshop the boys will learn how to draw and paint a face and will explore what makes their boy strong and unique. With the boys permission we will display their art in an exhibition entitled Portrait of a Boy. am - 16100 pm - 16101 Running, jumping, climbing – everyone loves to move. Parkour helps the boys do all of that in the fastest most efficient way possible! “Parkour involves seeing one's environment in a new way, and imagining the potential for navigating it by movement around, across, through, over and under its features”. This is about thinking and problem solving on the go! am - 16102 pm - 16103
