RIDGWAY – Area youth had a chance to spend time in nature and improve their artistic skills with the "Walk, Talk & Print" program offered by ECCOTA over the past few weeks.
Area students from fourth through eighth grade took to the outdoors around the Rails to Trails and Sandy Beach areas in the morning with Lora Zill. Zill teaches writing and critical analysis at Gannon University, and is also a teaching artist with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. She is also a faculty member in a program for gifted public school students at Allegheny College.
