Herricks students in grades 1-5 recently participated in Herricks Summer Art Camp which took place at Herricks High School. Students from Center Street, Denton Avenue, and Searingtown elementary schools came together to immerse themselves in a one-week art extravaganza.
Under the direction of Herricks Art teachers Doreen McDevitt, Amanda Rodriguez and Jessica D’Angelo, students explored various artists, mediums, and techniques throughout their time at the camp. It was a wonderful opportunity for the young artists to come together and share their love for the arts.
Doreen McDevitt shared, “The students not only created beautiful projects, but created lasting memories and made new friendships throughout the week.”
Herricks Director of Fine and Performing Arts Anissa Arnold said, “It was a perfect way to kick off summer and seeing all of the joyfulness and smiles along with the beautiful creations of these students each day was simply the best!” She continued, “the students are eager to bring their newly learned skills into art class in September and the art teachers are looking forward to working with them in the fall.”
