NAHS makes cards for soldiers overseas

in Features/General by

Soldiers who are stationed abroad rarely get to see their family and friends for the holidays. The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) helped boost their mood Nov. 8 by making holiday cards.

NAHS partnered with Heartillery Group, a non-profit organization whose mission is to show support, love and gratitude to troops overseas. The charity collects cards from all over the world and sends them to troops.

“We wished to participate in a charitable cause while using art,” said junior NAHS Vice President Sabrina Lin.

Members of NAHS made cards using the monoprinting technique, which is similar to stamping. They first painted a silicon pad with different colors of paint and applied different patterns using dried leaves and plants. A piece of paper was then placed on top of the card and pressed down until the pattern appeared. The cards will be sent out to Heartillery this week.
