Sixth-grade and middle-school children responded particularly well to this program. Teachers noted that they are young enough to be open to scribbling and exploratory art without the self-consciousness that a high-school student might feel. Yet they are old enough to understand what stress is and how drawing or scribbling might help them calm down, re-center, or find a more effective solution.
The ICWIB program is an economic way to teach self-regulation, and provide tools that also expand and develop the conscious creative and problem-solving mind in an enjoyable and effortless manner. With cutbacks in the arts, it is also a way to retain art, creative expression, and the power of self-reflection in the classroom for a minimal amount of training or cost.
