Life Cycles Education – The LEAF Project
The Laurel Palliative Care Foundation values the importance of encouraging young people to become fully aware of how precious their life here on earth is, that every life will experience a beginning, middle and end and that we will all experience the same journey in our own way.
In line with this, the Laurel Palliative Care Foundation has developed Life Cycles – the L.E.A.F. Project – Life. Education. Art. Feelings. Students complete their learning culminating in a public exhibition where they can display and discuss their work.
The teaching assists and encourages participants to explore their feelings through the art process beyond the classroom, and it is hoped that students will retain this learning throughout their life journey. As one student discovered, “It made me realise we are all part of a cycle”.
The L.E.A.F. Project allows young people to release their understanding of life through art and create a supported environment nurturing of discussion.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated, thank you.
