SHS NAHS Produces Portraits for The Memory Project

Each year, the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) works with The Memory Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural awareness, friendship, and kindness between children around the world through the universal language of art. The 2018/2019 SHS NAHS members, under the direction of art teacher Ms. Demi Protonentis, created 20 portraits that were gifted and delivered to children in Pakistan in August. The portraits serve as positive and tangible childhood “memories” for the children and help to build feelings of international friendship and solidarity.
