Western Pennsylvania Writing Project

Reading and Writing the Vanka Murals

Join the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project for a special educator session to explore the Vanka Murals of St. Nicholas Church in Millvale, PA. Participants tour the murals, read the murals through various framings and perspectives, write in response to what we notice, and grow conversations about connections we find to our lives and our teaching contexts. Participants will also have an opportunity to review classroom educational materials for potential use with their students and sign up for a possible class visit to the Murals during the 2021-22 school year.

Instructors: Melissa Butler, Michelle King, Becky Gaugler, and others at Vanka Murals

Location: St. Nicholas Church (24 Maryland Ave., Pgh, 15209)

Date: Friday 23 July

Time: 9am-noon
