Inspired by the work of Mexican artist Pia Camil, former Ligonier Valley Middle School writing and composition teacher Mary Ellen Raneri, worked with the fifth period writing class to create a piece of installation art. Her message is “writing is a work of art ... they paint on a canvas that is limitless.”
