Members of the National Art Honor Society at Sewanhaka High School dedicated their time to participate in the Memory Project for the fifth consecutive year. The Memory Project is an organization that connects young artists with children living in orphanages around the world, which was designed to enhance a positive self-image in children by giving them the ability to see themselves as works of art.
After art teacher Tiffany Kerschman contacted the organization to let them know that 26 students were interested in creating portraits, the National Art Honor Society decided to create portraits of children living in Ghana. The organization sent photographs to the student-artists and they created works of art in various media. The portraits will soon be hand delivered to the children in Ghana and the images of the children will be sent back to Sewanhaka’s students as a memento.
