The Mosaic Project educational component and “after-program”
The educational components of the Mosaic Project will provide hands-on and in-person opportunities for high school and middle school students from two public school districts in Lancaster County (one rural, one urban): School District of Lancaster and Pequea Valley School District.
Through PCA&D’s Mosaic Project, students can appreciate and create art, and also involve a significant adult in the process (parent, uncle, aunt, older sibling, etc.) through PCA&D’s unique “Intergenerational Art” class.
In addition, the Project’s after-program website will further involve these students in sharing their creative experiences – ensuring a continued involvement in and enthusiasm for the visual arts and their own creative abilities.
