OCR Students Share a Vision of Hope
11/10/2020
Students in Melissa Butler’s art classes at Old Country Road School participated in a very special project this year. The Memory Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating global kindness through art (www.memoryproject.org). American students, like those pictured here from OCR holding their artworks, exchange artworks with children from countries that are culturally very different from the USA. For this project, the artworks the students are holding will be sent to students in Pakistan. The intent of the exchange is to promote intercultural awareness, break down cultural and geographical barriers, and inspire creativity through the universal language of art.
