Clearview Regional art students create portraits for kids

The organization uses art to cultivate global kindness through original portraits.

Clearview’s National Art Honor Society students contributed artwork and fundraised for the Memory Project, a charitable organization that invites art students to help cultivate global kindness by creating portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as violence, extreme poverty or the loss of parents.

The young artists create portraits to help children feel valued and important, and to know that many people care about their well-being. This year, 20 students drew or painted portraits of children from Peru.
