About “Young Palettes Envision The Hudson 2009-2010”:
“Young Palettes Envision the Hudson” was designed and sponsored by Trestle Inc. to educate and increase appreciation for the Hudson River in connection with the 2009 Quadricentennial, the celebration of the 400th year of exploration of the Hudson River! A collaborative venture between Trestle Inc., Newburgh Enlarged City School District, the City of Newburgh and Orange County Tourism, “Young Palettes Envision the Hudson” began in September, 2008 with the request for teachers in the public and non-public Newburgh area schools interested in involving their students in researching any aspect of the Hudson River. Children were given Design Portfolios to create a piece of art from their research, explain in writing how the research impacted their art, and submit their work for public displays during the Quadricentennial year, with the possibility of having banners created depicting their art. They could use any medium they desired and present their artwork in any shape. Trestle Inc. received 300 pieces of art from 2nd through 9th grades, (also Newburgh’s 300th birthday year); twenty pieces were selected to become panel banners!
