Students' artistic abilities showcased at close of academic year
For a year-end project, I thought it would be cool to take some video and pictures of music- and arts-related activities -- respectively -- in the Genesee County schools.
The following video is 20 minutes long and divided into two parts (Youtube limits most users to about 10 minutes per video). It features concert footage from various schools in the county.
I have to make a quick apology for the poor video quality in a couple of instances. I had to be very careful to protect the identity of the kids (the ones photographed without parental approval), so I made sure none of the students' faces appeared too clearly on camera; plus, to be honest, the first camera I used turned out to be pretty awful when it came to taking video (even while taking decent pictures).
I also feel bad that I couldn't include every group I filmed in the video. My selections were based on a combination of different criteria, including:
- making sure the best songs were included
- making sure all of the schools I visited were included
- arranging the selections in a way that flowed nicely
So there's the music part. Here are some pictures I was able to take of art work done by Elba and Leroy students:

Both of the following pictures were submitted by Dan Carnevale. Sophomore Sydney Gallup (top photo) and two unidentified students stand with their drawings.

Congratulations all of the students for a job well done!
