This is a gallery of photos by students from Tri-Valley Central School in Grahamsville, New York. On April 28, students from three classes—photography, digital storytelling, and conservation—left their classroom and spent a day in Rondout Creek, learning about various techniques in stream assessment, fly-tying, and nature photography. These photos are from that day, taken by six budding photographers.
I believe that art can be found in the most complex, or simplest of places. From the tallest skyscraper to the smallest flower, any of these things can be captured in a way that presents them artistically. Any creative thinking that went into any item we see can be interpreted as art. However, as a soon-to-be high school graduate, and a freshman at the Maine College of Art, I personally prefer to look to nature as my muse. The trip that we took to document the Watershed was a wonderful opportunity. It allowed me to learn new things while getting an outlet to express my creative side. For a nascent artist like me, it is truly exhilarating to express that facet of myself, and to show others that as well.
I am Montana Sherwood a 17 year old girl , I attend Tri-Valley high school. I decided to go on this trip because I believe that raw nature is a beautiful thing. The beauty behind the scenes is magnificent, the missed place leaves and flowers that are just all over the place , they just do there own thing.
