Working in conjunction with the Memory Project, Rocky Point High School’s drawing and painting class students created artistic keepsakes for 20 children in war-torn Syria.

Under the guidance of teacher Greg Armine, the students drew individual lifelike portraits for this special group of children who are currently living in orphanages and refugee camps. The students based their work on photos of the children provided by the organization.
According to a letter from Memory Project Director Ben Schumaker, “For these children, receiving the portraits you create will be a very special, fun and meaningful event – not only adding color to the monotony of the camp, but also helping to show that people far away care about their well-being.”
