Self-Love Project Example 1
Here at the HALO Learning Center, we believe that art and connection are powerful tools in healing childhood trauma. We like to begin each workshop discussing the importance of a specific topic or life skill, such as integrity, compassion and perseverance.
In February of this year, HALO was hosting a group of students from a local alternative high school program and what better time to talk about self-love, then on Valentines Day?
We started out by asking the group, "What forms of love do you have in your life right now?" The teens shared answers such as, my girlfriend or boyfriend, my baby, my dog, my niece. We discussed the importance of those forms of love, and to really love, we have to first learn how to love ourselves. Sometimes we can be our own worst critic, and that it often times feels easier to put others before ourselves. Their response, "Ohhhh, I didnt even think about myself!"
The project was to create a Self-Love Puzzle, where each puzzle piece they drew within a heart was a piece of something about themselves that they love. It took a lot of self-reflection and conversation, but what they created ended up beautiful and uniquely theirs.
Thank you for supporting HALO and showing our youth that love truly does heal.
