Memory Project Brings Joy Through Art

Memory Project Brings Joy Through Art  thumbnail133496

In June, Eric Fox’s IB Visual Art students at Long Beach High School once again completed portraits for the Memory Project. The Memory Project invites high school art students to cultivate global kindness by creating portraits as special gifts for children around the world. These portraits help the children feel valued and important, show them that many people care about their wellbeing, and provide them with a special childhood memory for the future.

This year the portraits were sent to children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The video shows the process from creating the portraits here in Long Beach to their delivery to schools and orphanages in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the first time that the Memory Project has worked with groups in Pakistan, and Long Beach High School is proud to have been a part of it!
