See How You Feel – Quail Hill Farm

Photography project with a visit to Peconic Land Trust’s Quail Hill Farm

See How You Feel is a photography project to help young people inquire into the nature of seeing, stretch their point of view, and discover the emotion of creative experience. 5th graders from Springs School in East Hampton NY learned from professional photographers how to use cameras and experiment visually. The program concluded with a field shoot at an organic community farm. Students used up to date digital cameras thanks to a grant from the Joy of Giving Something Foundation.
