Students at Riverhead High School and Riley Avenue and Aquebogue elementary schools recently learned about various art techniques from visiting artist and author Joyce Raimondo.

During the sessions, Ms. Raimondo led age-appropriate discussions about expressionism in art and an analysis of several pieces. Students explored the differences between the more obvious facial expressions/body language evident in objective artwork and expressive abstract artwork.  

The discussions culminated with a hands-on piece in which students worked on action-painting techniques used by abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock.
