On Monday, November 4, a new STEAM mural created by the students in the AAHS Art for Public Places class was revealed at McAuliffe Heights at Irving Elementary School. The mural project was a collaborative effort between AAHS students in the Art for Public Places class and students at McAuliffe Heights.
The artwork is a welcome to all those who attend or visit the school. The STEAM mural represents Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, which is the emphasis of the programing at McAuliffe Heights. Each board of the mural depicts a letter of STEAM and corresponding items that reflect the letter’s theme. The background of each board is the handprint of each student who attends McAuliffe Heights, personally connecting the students to the project.
The project was funded by the Altoona Area School District Foundation.
