The Memory Project

This is a picture of a young refugee boy from Syria. His name is Faez, he's 10 years old and his favorite color is pink.

This year through my drawing & painting class I was given the wonderful opportunity to create a watercolor portrait for this beautiful boy and be a part of #thememoryproject. #thememoryproject is an organization based in Wisconsin that allows art students from America create keepsake portraits for young children who are currently living in vulnerable countries and are taking refuge. These children are either in orphanages or refugee camps and receiving their education within their camps.

This portrait will be sent to Faez by early January. Please keep these kids and the rest of the world in your hearts and prayers!
