How to Create a Gratitude Journal

An easy, fun way to make your life more hopeful using creativity is to use a gratitude journal.
When we make gratitude journals with children and teens in Arts & Dreams workshops they take to it right away. Young people instantly get the importance of being thankful.
In this video, we show you how to create a gratitude journal for yourself using acrylic paints.

There's always something to be grateful for. Take a few moments to stop and write them down. 
Small, big, and everything in between. The practice of gratitude is transformational.

Gratitude journaling is an art project we share in Arts & Dreams workshops and it's also featured in our new book for children, Rose's Summer of Arts & Dreams.
The book is about Rose, a 9 year old Brooklynite who has lost hope in her dreams, and learns how to feel better using art.
