Teacher Resources

Thank you for making portraits for children in Pakistan!

We know that many teachers use the Portrait Program as a chance to teach their students about the lives and culture of the children for whom they create portraits. Feel free to use the following resources to guide your discussions. 

Overview

We are passionate about breaking barriers and uniting youth from different cultures. For that reason, we are very exited to create portraits for children in Pakistan for the very first time. As one of our Pakistani partners says, "When many people think of our country they think of terrorism, but it's not like that!  We are a very warm and welcoming people who are eager for friendship and cannot wait to see the special portraits you create for the children in our homes." These children living in orphanages, who have so few things to call their own, will be thrilled to receive the portraits that your students create just for them--to feel the love and kindness from a foreign world through the universal language of art.
