Students create art for Memory Project

PJHS Art Classes participate in an incredible art project

The Memory ProjectStudents in Ms. Horst’s Drawing 1 Class have participated in a project that will leave memories for a lifetime.  The assignment is called “The Memory Project”.  According to their website, “The Memory Project” is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits for children and teens around the world who have been neglected, orphaned, or disadvantaged. Given that kids in such situations tend to have few personal keepsakes, “The Memory Project” aims to provide them with special memories that capture a piece of their childhood - portable pieces of their personal history. As much as possible, “The Memory Project” also want to help the kids see themselves as works of art. The artists this year are:

  • Cory Baisley, Senior

  • Robert Nash, Senior

  • Zachary Sutton, Senior

  • Molly McCabe, Junior

  • Julie Cable, Sophomore

  • Caitlin May, Sophomore

  • Benjamin McCoy - Freshman

The “Port Portraits” for 2014-2015 are going to kids in Paraguay.  In the past several years, kids in Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, and Peru have received portraits from our students.  Ms. Horst is very proud of her students and very involved with this program.
