These students from Midland Community Schools (Wyoming, IA) participated in the Memory Project in Spring 2010. Beth, Stacie, Channing, and Annie painted the portraits as part of their Senior Art Studio (senior independent study) class just before they graduated. Their art teacher Kellie Kelck shared this photo.
The Memory Project (www.thememoryproject.org) is an art service-learning program in which advanced high school students create portraits for children living in orphanages around the world.
The project was developed by Ben Schumaker as a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin.
In 2003, while volunteering in Guatemala, Ben encountered a man who had grown up in an orphanage. This man explained that he did not have any personal belongings from his youth. He suggested that Ben help the kids collect special items that would contribute to their sense of identity and self-worth.
From this, Ben envisioned that having portraits made by art students would be a way to connect American youth with kids from other countries in a meaningful exchange of caring. The Memory Project was officially born in the fall of 2004.
Several Iowa teachers have participated in this program. If you submit portraits, please share photos with firstname.lastname@example.org.
