The Memory Project

 

 Art students at Northwoods Park Middle School have joined the Memory Project, a charitable nonprofit organization that invites art teachers and their students to create and donate portraits to youth around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, violence, and extreme poverty.  Given that youth in such situations usually have few personal keepsakes, the purpose of the portraits is to provide them with meaningful mementos of their youth.  The project also allows art students to practice kindness and global awareness while enhancing their portraiture skills.

Students at Northwoods Park Middle School are participating as part of the Art Club.  To do this, the students receive photos of children who are waiting for portraits, and then work in their art classroom to create the portraits.  Once finished, the Memory Project delivers the portraits to the children.  In total, the students will make portraits for twelve Syrian refugee children, located on Syria’s border.

The Memory Project is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Middleton, Wisconsin.  Since the project began in 2004, more than 100,000 American art students have created portraits for children in 44 countries.

They currently have photos of more than a thousand Syrian children living in a refugee camp on Syria's border.  They delivered portraits to this refugee camp last year, and they were very valuable gifts to these children who have lost everything to the war.
