Participants will get to explore the many emotions that people experience, and how every one of us expresses our feelings in different ways. There will also be a segment called "Emotions vocabulary" where children get to learn words that describe specific emotions under the broad umbrellas of Happy, Sad, Angry, Calm and Scared. Hong Shin will also guide the children in drawing faces that express how they are feeling.
