Memory Project: Colombia Portraits

Hester art club students were stretching their global awareness by creating portraits for children in Colombia who are living in orphanages.  The students wanted to use their artwork to bring a smile to other's who are living in difficult circumstances.  It is important to note that these children are well cared for.

The Memory Project has been around since 2004 and has delivered 90,000 portraits to children in 42 countries!  The wonderful team at the Memory Project makes the process easy for teachers and students.  In a few weeks we will receive a video that captures the delivery of the portraits - it always brings tears to my eyes the joy we are able to help create!  Check out this wonderful organization HERE.

Art club students also worked to create portraits for Syrian refugees - and I will share those once they are completed - the deadline isn't until January.  Here are some of the portraits we created and some of the work in progress.  As you can see we made multiples of some portraits to be able to include more students and still raise enough $ to fund the small project fee that goes toward to the organization to fund the deliveries and operating expenses.  As you can see, we have some talented artists!
