Art Reflecting the Times

November 9, 2020

The art department at Riverhead High School has created a new display case in the school’s main hallway as a way of speaking to these unprecedented times through art.

The display includes several famous masterpieces reimaged with masks, as well as impressive self-portraits, created by 10th grade drawing and painting students.

“The students’ work showcases their ability to adapt to an unfortunate situation while learning technique and skill,” said Director of Fine Arts/ Assistant Principal Jason Rottkamp. “Their images beautifully show their understanding of drawing techniques such as gesture and contour line.”
