Inspiration came in bits and pieces to young women of The
Ellis School as they deftly fashioned this Stegosaurus
out of ceramic dishes, then grouted each inch between the
plates. They dubbed the mosaic masterpiece "Plato."
Karen Kaighin, photography teacher at Ellis and Pittsburgh
Filmmakers, coordinated the project along with art teachers
from throughout the school.
The Ellis School is an urban, independent college-preparatory
school and the only dedicated to the education of girls
and young women in western Pennsylvania. Each student is
inspired to succeed by nurturing
her spirit, challenging her intellect and encouraging her
vision of the future. In turn, we expect each student to
deliver her best, to serve her community and to embrace
the diversity of the faculty and student body.
