Update: Memory Project Portraits Delivered to Ecuador

Earlier this year, Studio Art II students studying with Nancy McTague Stock participated in The Memory Project.  They received photographs of orphans in Ecuador from which they painted portraits of each orphan.  The finished portraits were recently delivered to Ecuador where they were received with great enthusiasm.

The Memory Project  was founded by Ben Schumaker while he was studying in Guatemala as a graduate student in 2004. According to the foundation’s website

The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits (drawings, paintings, digital art, etc) for children and teens around the world who have been orphaned, neglected, or disadvantaged.  The goal of the project is to inspire caring, global friendship, and a positive sense of self.
