butterfly-quillQuilling is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, looped, curled or twisted and then glued together to create decorative designs. Quilling is an ancient art that is seeing resurgence all over the world. It is a people’s art form and is great for all ages due to the simplicity of the techniques and how relaxing it is. Quilling today can be seen on wedding invitations, Christmas decorations, birth announcements, greeting cards, scrapbook pages and wall hangings.

Courtney Grammentz, a student at Minnewaska High School, began her photography journey last year when she took a photography class at the high school. This past summer, Courtney’s photography interest led to the capturing of nature, flowers in particular, and of an old abandoned farm site of her grandparents. At fairs around the state, Courtney won numerous first and second prize ribbons along with a few championship ribbons.
