The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits for children and teens around the world who have been orphaned, abandoned, neglected, or otherwise disadvantaged. To participate, artists receive pictures of children who are waiting for portraits. The artists then create the portraits, and The Memory Project coordinates the delivery of the portraits to the children. The goal of the project is to inspire caring in the student artists and a positive sense of self in the orphanage children. The project is directed by the nonprofit organization My Class Cares, and is funded at TSA by the generous support of the Parents’ Org.
