How To: Create a Vision Board for Those At-Risk or Recovering


A vision board is visual artwork that represents a person's goals. Help motivate at-risk adults, teens or children to graduate or achieve any other form of improvement. Art skills are helpful, but def. not required.

  1. Determine where you want to lead your workshop.
  2. Collect art supplies. Your goal is to collect:
    • Scissors
    • Blank papers (colored or white) and Posterboards
    • Glue, tape, or rubber cement
    • Markers or colored pencils
    • Magazines and Newspapers
  3. Ask the audience you are leading to think of a goal. What do they want in the coming months? Do they want to find a job? Study for a test? Overcome an addiction?
  4. Make a collage using the art supplies and magazines/newspapers. Each person should create a work of art representing that goal.
  5. Encourage everyone to put the vision board somewhere to view every day.
