Editor’s Note: Teton Science Schools Field Education experiences cultivate the skills of young scientists, artists, and naturalists. This week on the TSS blog, we celebrate the creativity of our students in a series of five posts featuring student work in just as many media: writing, drawing, painting, weaving, and mixed media. We hope you enjoy this nature-inspired work. Check out the other posts in this series: Writing, and Species Accounts
Doris Florig is Teton Science Schools’ Artist-in-Residence and is based at the Kelly Campus. Florig creates beautiful weavings and sculptures from hand-woven and hand-died yarn. Florig engages TSS students in her projects, not only imparting her passion for weaving, but emphasizing the invaluable theme of interconnectedness, both in ecology and in community.
