This project is designed for school age children to develop self-regulation through engagement in arts-based activities with their peers. In this creative environment, children increase their ability to concentrate and cooperate with others, while focusing on contributing to group outcomes. The overall goal for each child is to develop cognitive and emotional domains that will support their ability to learn. The engaging qualities of arts-based activities help to develop a sense of self within a group context, leading to a successful educational experience. The following handbook provides a framework for the implementation of a three-month program that uses music, art, and drama to develop and complete a student production. --Leaf ii.
