Something Nice! One of our Dept projects - The Memory Project
I'm in a Service-Learning Dept - where some (try 47 classes this next semester) of the classes have an extra project attached to them that's service-learning - where the students give back to the community (many of the 4 yr schools around here are now requiring 250-350 community hours from all their students -- and the hours spent on our projects - anywheres from 10-250 (criminal justice) apply toward that.)
Anyway - one of our Art dept projects is the Memory Project - where (for this project) the low to no income families of Guatamala's children's pictures were taken and sent over here - where our art dept students painted them and sent them back to them. We've started this same project here in the city as well for the low-no income families too - all based on this success.
Check out some of these pictures of the kids and their portraits.
