Teacher Resources

Thank you for making portraits for children in the Philippines!

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

Last year we partnered with a wonderful organization in the Philippines to create portraits for children living in garbage dumps and other extremely impoverished situations. The experience was so overwhelmingly positive that they told us we must do it again. With your help we aim to reach 1,000 additional Filipino children in very difficult situations this year, creating a bond through art that spans across oceans and cultures.
