Mona Hill Staff Writer Quincy High art teacher Danielle DeBoever conceived an unusual art project when she received an invitation to be a part of The Memory Pro- ject through the mail in Sep- tember. The project sends photos of children who have been or- phaned, neglected or who are disadvantaged to art students in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Korea. The art students re- turn finished portraits to the children, often with a mes- sage. More than 30,000 art stu- dents have delivered portraits to children in 33 countries. Some children receive more than one. DeBoever decided her ad- vanced art students would participate. The QHS Boost- ers Club donated some of the $15 per artist fee and DeBoev- er dipped into her own pocket to pay for nine students. The Quincy artists received photos of a group of children from Ecuador. DeBoever said her students were very interested and mo- tivated by the assignment, NatalieKepple's photograph accompanies her portrait of David, a child in Ecuador. Her work, done as an art assignment in Danielle DeBoever's advanced art class, will be sent to David through The Memory Project (, an international organization that gives disadvantaged children a tangible keepsake of their childhood. which lasted a couple of. they could see who painted weeks, the portraits. , She said the most challeng-"Studentsq~e~n'ed a small ing part of the assignment write-up in their sketchbooks was to create the skin tones reflecting on the assignment. using only primary colors,DeBoever asked students toIn a few months, project or- plus black and white.
