ACADEMY SPOTLIGHT: Members of the Visual Arts Academy recently embarked on The Memory Project. The intention of The Memory Project is to link children together all over the world through art. These portraits allow children to truly see each other, regardless of any cultural, religious, or circumstantial differences.
After applying to partake in The Memory Project, a school is then linked with a group of children facing some type of challenge in a different part of the world. St. Mary’s students painted portraits of children in Nigeria.
Now that these portraits are complete, they will be shipped to Nigeria and delivered to their likenesses to bring them a little sense of joy and hope.
