Welcome to the Long Island Academy of Fine Art

LIAFA is Long Island’s premier art school, with art classes for kids (3rd through 7th grade), teens (portfolio preparation), and adults of all levels and abilities. We offer training in the methods and techniques of classical representational art. Our primary goals are to train the student’s eye to see accurately and with sensitivity, and to foster an environment in which students can grow in their understanding of art as well as in skill and confidence. Classes run year-round, seven days a week. Please visit us to see our studios, or call to arrange a trial class.
