The OHHS Drawing and Printmaking 2017 Memory Project Delivery Videos!

The portraits that the OHHS Drawing and Printmaking students created were successfully delivered to the children and teens from Syria/Jordan. The people at The Memory Project wanted us to know that the children absolutely loved them and receiving personalized gifts made in their own image was a totally new experience for them, and all the more meaningful considering their current circumstances.

The following video of the delivery begins with an introduction to our OHHS Drawing and Printmaking students and work and then shows many children receiving their portraits together at all the different locations that were involved.

To get the video, just go to the following links below.

Also, some of the children offered to perform a few songs and dances, to share something of themselves in return, and you can view those here:

The participation fees from all of the schools involved in the Jordan/Syria Memory Project we were able to purchase $5,187 in art supplies for various community centers serving the children in the refugee camp, and we were also able to donate $1,600 to the orphanages.
