Berlin High School art students are putting their talents to good use, creating portraits of orphans from Bangladesh.
Through the Memory Project, a nonprofit organization working to spread kindness to children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, Berlin students are drawing portraits of children so the children not only have a memory for the future, but it will help them feel valued.
“The children the students are drawing have experienced situations no child should have to go through such as war, extreme poverty, neglect or the loss of their parents,” says Angela Breunig, BHS Art Teacher. “With the Memory Project, we are given photos of the orphans and, in turn, we paint portraits which will be sent back to the children.”
Once the Berlin portraits are complete, they will be delivered to the orphans. For those interested in sponsoring one of the portraits to cover costs for shipping, a $15 fee, please contact Angela Breunig at email@example.com or (920) 361-2000.
