Oakwood Art Teacher Noreen Erickson shared a wonderful story and photos of her students visiting the Heckscher Museum of Art.  The second grade took a field trip to the Heckscher Museum of Art in the month of March. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to visit a museum and explore all different forms of art.  The children were excited to view the Long Island Best display, which showcased local talented high school artists.  The students were so impressed to see what magnificent work they may create one day when they are in High School.
