Taking Education Beyond the Classroom
Students from The University School in Pittsburgh were able to take their learning experience beyond the classroom during a visit to the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History.
The trip was part of Assure America’s Arts Youth Education Program, which seeks to give school-aged children access to various venues of visual arts, music, literature and theater. The program accomplishes this through on-site experiences, instruction and introspective debate, with the latter providing the undercurrent for intuitive thought and deeper understanding.
