A Face With Every Story

portrait_class_content.jpgYouville Assisted Living Residences in Cambridge is home to a diverse group of people that all have a story to share. In an effort to foster relationships between the older and younger generations to help them appreciate and learn from each other, Ms. Menges' Portrait class has partnered with Youville House on an exciting project.

Starting in mid-November and ending early January, her class of 12 CRLS students will pair up with a resident from Youville and draw their portrait. To really understand their legacies, students will draw, take pictures, and record interviews. Back at the classroom, the students will transcribe the recorded stories and finalize drawings and paintings of the residents.

To celebrate the completion of this project, in January, both students and Youville residents will install a joint show of student and resident artwork in Youville and attend a reception.

At Youville, their motto is "Assisted living, with the emphasis on Living". These individuals' lives will now be showcased for all to enjoy through the talented artwork and writings of CRLS students.
