HISTORY OF THE SIMPLE GOOD ART ACTIVITY BOOK BELOW:The first Simple Good SEL-based Art Activity Book (2020 launch) is a beautiful tool of hope that emerged during the pandemic as we realized that many of our communities did not have access to the internet to participate in our virtual programs. In response to the drastic inequities in mental health and education access in Chicago, we collaborated with artists from around the world to create a physical book with our SEL and Mindfulness-based curriculum. Within the first year of publishing we received 3,000 book requests from schools across Chicago. Today, The Simple Good's SEL-Based Art Activity Books (2020) continues to be used in the classrooms and by adults alike!

Herartworks illustrate a transitional period of overcoming hardships and finding new life pathways. Her design for this t-shirt borrows from that idea, by keeping 'simple good' themes like imagination, determination, growth and resilience alive.
