Solvay Art Students Deliver Portraits to Rohingya Students

Recently, students from Ms. McGraw’s art class received news that their portraits were delivered to Rohingya children via the Memory Project!

The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits for children and teens around the world that have been orphaned, neglected or disadvantaged. To begin, some of Solvay’s advanced art students received photos of Rohingya kids who were currently living in refugee camps. With the photos of their subjects at hand, the Solvay students got to work. To see some of the final results, please click on the video below!


“The Memory Project is passionate about breaking barriers and uniting youth from different cultures,” said Ms. McGraw. “The goal of the project  is to inspire caring, global friendship, and a positive sense of self. It also allows students to practice kindness, empathy, and service to others.”

This is the district’s ninth year participating in the project. Amazing job by Solvay's artists, creating something beautiful to help raise awareness!
