About The Coloring Confidence Enrichment Program

Coloring Confidence is an enrichment program for students with dyslexia (and other language based learning disabilities). The art integration based projects completed in this program are designed after the Social Studies and Language Art lessons students are learning in school. Coloring Confidence aims to improve students' self-esteem by showing them that dyslexia is not a disadvantage; instead, it is because they have dyslexia that they have uniquely creative abilities. Through this enrichment program, students will learn lifelong artistic skills that they can apply to help work out their academic struggles. The art projects found on this blog are modeled after an elementary school curriculum; however they can easily be adjusted and applied to any student's lessons to help them learn in a fun and artistic way.

What is Art Integration?

Art integration is an artistic approach to teaching that makes learning visible by demonstrating academic topics through art forms. By creating a visual and hands-on representation of what is being taught, students can better understand the lessons. Art integration is beneficial to most students with dyslexia (and other language based learning disabilities) because people with dyslexia (and other language based learning disabilities) struggle with reading comprehension; however, art integration employs visual comprehension. Neither students nor teachers need an artistic background to use art integration. The complete art projects do not have to be elaborate; simply creating a visual representation of the lesson will be beneficial to the learner.
