The Memory Project: Studio Art II Students Help Ecuadorian Orphans

The Memory Project is an organization that fosters global friendship between high school art students around the world and children in orphanages.  Ben Schumaker founded the organization in 2004 while volunteering in Guatemala as a graduate student.  Through the Memory Project, GFA Studio Art II students studying with Nancy McTague Stock received photographs of Ecuadorian orphans  and created a series portraits that were then hand delivered by the Memory Project to the orphans themselves.  According the the foundation’s website

In total, art students from the USA, UK, Canada and Korea have now created more than 30,000 portraits for kids from 33 countries.

GFA is proud to have our students and faculty participating in such an outstanding program.
