Almost every teenager goes through wild periods of self-expression that will typically include clothing and musical choices that are borderline offensive to their parents. However, it’s important not to stifle your teen while they experiment with different versions of self-expression. After all, as long as they are not hurting themselves or anyone around them, there is really nothing wrong with their actions. In this episode of Insights Into Teens we’ll explore how self-expression allows teenagers to discover who they are and helps form their adult personalities.
We’ll take a look at some of the benefits that creative writing offers to our teenagers.
Then we’ll talk to Madison about how she’s developed her creative writing skills over the years and what she personally gets from writing
Then we’ll take a look at where Madison is with her writing now, what her future in creative writing might look like and get some tips and advice for teens who might be interested in getting into creative writing.
This week we highlight the artistic talents of our co-host Madison. We’ll take a look at several outlets for artistic expression that she enjoys from music to writing and illustration to creative construction. We’ve got a few pre-recorded segments that will allow us to showcase Madison’s musical talents on the Trumpet and some spoken word versions of her creative writing exploits.
We also took the time to digitize a selection of her artwork. We’ll get a chance to look at how her artistic styles and skills advance from basic custom comics through her own character generation and the evolution of her own unique art style.
Finally we’ll look at her creative construction expression through her custom lego creations. We’ll take a walk through her unique apartment complex that allowed her to expand beyond just doing instruction based Lego builds to something a bit more complicated and creative.
Art plays an import part to the development of our youth. Encouraging those creative endeavors is key to grown of skills, imagination and expression. If you would like us to feature some of your artwork on a future recap podcast feel free to send some samples over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
