Recently National Art Honor Society students completed their annual “Memory Project” in which members of the non-profit organization take pictures of under privileged children, or children who live in shelters or orphanages, from various lower income countries.

In previous years, the school has been sent pictures from different countries such as Ukraine and Haiti, but this year, Memory Project members visited the Philippines and sent pictures to both art teachers in the school, who then distributed the pictures to art students in order to paint portraits of these children.  When finished, the portraits are then hand delivered to each individual child.

“This is a huge gift to these kids, they do not have much and it is a way for students to bring smiles to the their faces,” Art teacher Mrs. Van Veenhuyzen said.
