Memory Project

When Katie Fox '18 first heard about the Memory Project, she immediately thought it would be a great way to combine her love of art with her dedication to service. With Ursuline's motto of "Serviam" in mind, she was intrigued to learn about this non-profit that invites art students to create and donate portraits of youth around the world who live with substantial challenges. The portraits are intended to help the children feel valued and important, and provide a meaningful piece of personal history for them. Besides the benefit to the children, it offers a way for student artists to use their unique talents to practice kindness and global awareness in a very personal way. 


National Art Honor Society

The National Art Honor Society provides national recognition for students who exhibit outstanding scholarship in the visual arts. The opportunity to apply for membership in NAHS is offered to students based on their performance in Visual Arts classes and clubs.

At Ursuline, NAHS plans community art collaborations which have included the "Timeline of Black Excellence" in partnership with the Racial Justice Club, and "Chalk it Up" with the wider school community. Members receive certificates and pins to mark their inclusion in this national organization. They also receive recognition within the school, leadership growth opportunities, and the chance to work on fun projects with a group of similarly interested peers.
