From Feb. 16-18, the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) sold a variety of chips in the high school atrium and around the school hallways to fundraise for a school art project, officially known as the Memory Project. Each bag of chips was sold for 3000 won and two bags cost 5000 won. NAHS plans to use the funds to cover the cost of painting portraits of the underprivileged youth and sending the drawings to the children. 

“Every year, we have a tradition of a school project where we draw portraits of Nigerian children,” Dayeon Han, executive member of the NAHS, said. “We began with chip sales in hopes of raising funds that will all go to help us with continuing this project.”

The NAHS executive team went around the school building, encouraging other students to purchase chips for a good cause. The Memory Project not only aims to help young artists in NAHS hone their portrait-drawing techniques but also bring joy to children in need.

“The NAHS is currently creating portraits for the Memory Project for children in disadvantaged countries,” Jane Mitchell, high school art teacher, said. “[NAHS members] are using photographs of children in need. The chips sales are about raising money needed for this project.”
