Students Create Art for Rohingya Refugee Children


NKHS art students from Kathy Griffey's NK Art Club and Caro Wilding’s AP Studio class recently partnered with the Memory Project, an organization that works with UNICEF, to connect art students and solo artists with disadvantaged children in other countries.


The students created portraits for Rohingya children who were chased out of their home country of Myanmar and now live in the largest refugee camp in the world in Bangladesh. The children have nothing, and the portraits make them feel special and loved. Each portrait cost the artist a $15 donation. The Art Club voted unanimously to use their funds for the project, though the NKHS ASB graciously offered a grant to cover the costs.

Copies of the portraits are on display at the Poulsbo Public Library, along with art from other Art Club students with the theme, A Sense of Place.
