Members of the W.T. Clarke High School National Art Honor Society, in the East Meadow School District, illustrated coloring books for patients in the Nassau University Medical Center Pediatric Unit.
NAHS members collaborated after school to draw, organize and assemble images for 200 coloring books. This year’s theme for the project, which is undertaken annually by the NAHS, was seasons and nature, inspiring contour-lined drawings of landscapes, marine life and other animals.
Each coloring book will be accompanied by a new box of crayons, donated through the NAHS’s crayon drive that is running in February. After the drive is complete, NAHS members will visit NUMC in March to distribute the coloring books and crayons to pediatric patients and their young family members.
“Our members were very excited to create the drawings for this year’s coloring book,” explained art teacher and NAHS adviser Jane Pawlowski. “We hope our coloring books will ease the hospital experience for the children in the hospital.”
