Sunnyvale’s Taarika Foundation Supports the Whole Child

Colorful Creations program uses art to teach students mindfulness

By Anika Nambisan

The Taarika Foundation, a local nonprofit that focuses on mental health in children and adolescents, recently gathered students for a back-to-school tie-dying event, an activity aimed at melding art and mindfulness.

The Taarika Foundation’s main objective of “Supporting the Whole Child” was accomplished in this event. The foundation conducted a number of Mindfulness Workshops and seminars to teach stress management tools, including Mindfulness for Teens and Parents, over the past three years.

To teach the skill of mindfulness to young children, the Taarika Foundation launched the program Colorful Creations, using art as a medium to teach mindfulness.
