Riverhead High School’s cafeteria, gymnasium, hallway to the gymnasium and all classrooms in the school’s art wing were filled with art Friday evening for the district’s annual celebration of art — aptly named “Art in Action.”
Paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and masks by nearly all the 5,000 students in Riverhead Central School District were on display.
There were also activity tables set up with art projects for the children to create something to take home.
There are six art teachers at the high school, teaching classes in photography, studio art, computer graphics, ceramics and creative crafts. There is an art teacher in the middle school as well as every elementary school in the district, officials said.
