Laylac Center with cooperation with Rogue Foundation from New York City, have conducted an art project for children. On February 19th, the art department at Laylac has hosted Mr. Kevin O’Hanlon the director of RF in West Manhattan. The art project has carried out in two places. The first was in Jeb Al-Theeb Village, which is considered a marginalized village without simple life necessities. The aim of this project was to allow children to paint and express themselves for the first time with colors. The theme of the workshop was “Have you ever seen the sea? If ‘No’ how do you imagine it?” The children started painting the sea as each one of them could imagine. Thus the results were very impressive and fabulous for children who painted for the first time in their life.
As a continuation of the project, Rogue Foundation has held the second art workshop at Laylac, where the children of Dheisheh Camp came to draw and express their feelings and thoughts. Also, the theme of the workshop was about the concept of the sea.
Finally, the artworks of children are going to be exhibited in New York City during the next coming months at Rogue Foundation’s location. The exhibit would be attended by many people who want to learn about Palestine.
