Watching children work at the Carpenter Art Garden has proved again to me that creativity is good for the soul.  Especially when kids contribute to a creation bigger than themselves, creativity can help them endure stress.   They have outlets for things stuck inside.  They have the social supports of the other artists.  They see a greater good.  And somehow all of this buffers them from stress.  It’s as if, in the process of creating art, they create their ability to cope a bit better.  It looks like they get something out of this besides art!
