A Face with Every Story – Art Reception with Cambridge Rindge & Latin Students (YH)
January 12, 2012 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Youville Assisted Living Residence in Cambridge is home to a diverse group of people who all have a story to share. In an effort to foster relationships betweenthe older and younger generations to help them appreciate and learn from each other, Ms. Menges’ Portrait class from Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School has partnered with Youville House on an exciting project. Since mid-November and ending early January, her class of 12 CRLS students have paired up with residents from Youville and drawn their portraits. To really understand their subjects, students drew, took pictures, and recorded interviews. Back in the classroom, the students transcribed the recorded stories and finalized drawings and paintings of the residents.
To celebrate the completion of this project, the students and Youville residents will host a joint art show and reception celebrating the students and residents artwork at Youville. The Youville philosophy is “Assisted living, with the emphasis on Living.” These individual’s lives will now be showcased for all to enjoy through the talented artwork and writings of CRLS students.
