ROCHESTER — Students from the Puerto Rican Youth Development and Resource Center and the Rochester After-School Academy’s program at Edison Tech High School recently unveiled a mural they created.
The mural is called "Culture," and was shown to parents and community members for the first time during an April 30 ceremony at the high school. The mural depicts what culture means to the students through religion, music and artifacts, according to information from the Ibero-American Action League.
"The arts help students to be creative, expressive and productive students," said Aida Veras, Ibero’s vice president of children and youth services that oversees PRYD programs. "The arts can be an outlet for many students too."
