  Alphabetasaurus About the Design
The Grable Foundation's philosophy of supporting education was demonstrated in a very meaningful way for students of Pittsburgh's Phillips Elementary School.  The foundation donated a DinoMite Days dinosaur for the students to decorate.  The students, led by art teacher Carl Goldman, developed a concept based on the alphabet, the building blocks of our language and education.  Students and teachers from throughout the school created the letters and applied them to the dinosaur.
