Langley Students Create Collages of Places Explored
The final session of Going Places: Building Skills and Exploring Architecture on February 20 was a whirlwind of activity. Middle School students from Pittsburgh Langley created collages incorporating photos of places they had explored and activities they had participated in during the after-school enrichment program offered by PHLF. In creating the collages, the students were inspired by the work of African American artist Romare Bearden (1911-1988) who graduated from the Pittsburgh Public Schools in 1929.
James Doyle, coordinator of After-School Programs at the PPS, will display the collages during the Extra Learning Opportunities (ELO) Conference in Harrisburg, from March 12 to 15.
Going Places was created by PHLF in cooperation with Pittsburgh Langley teachers. The program was funded by PHLF and the Pittsburgh Public Schools through grants from the McSwigan Family Foundation, Alfred M. Oppenheimer Memorial Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, and Pennsylvania Department of Education.
