Hingham Middle School Art Club lead by Lauren LaPoint joined the Memory Project this year and created portraits of school age kids in a refugee camp.
The Memory Project is a charitable nonprofit organization that invites art teachers, art students, and solo artists to help cultivate global kindness by creating portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as violence, war, extreme poverty, neglect, and loss of parents. Our participants create these portraits to help children feel valued and important, to know that many people care about their well-being, and to provide a special childhood memory in the future. Since 2004 we have created more than 130,000 portraits for children in 47 countries.

Each year, art teachers from across the sate nominate student work in which they find original, interesting, personal, and well crafted. This year, I asked eight students to enter work that I was incredible proud of and thought deserved awards. Here are the four students who were recognized by the independent state-wide panel of judges. Congratulations to all the student who entered!
And the winners are...
Scholastic Art awards
Summit Bleak - Ceramics - Face Jug
Abby Bienfang - Ceramics -Untitled (face Jug)
Emily Burbank -Ceramics -Griffin
Emma Kate Vassil -Ceramics -Tea Party
Take a look at the new project... and you will notice immediately how far these students have come! All the hard work and practice has paid off. My hope is that I see these students in an advanced class next year.
