Little Artist Program
For grades K–2
Though students will learn some basic principles of drawing taught to all other levels, students will get to explore color and materials in playful projects that are designed to hold their interest and expand their exposure to art. Students will work through projects together, spending one or two classes per project.
Portfolio Development Program
For students working towards specific portfolio requirements, we provide one-on-one portfolio review and consultation. Instruction is individualized; students may begin at basic or accelerated levels. Classes in drawing, painting, digital design, and sculpture are taught by professional artists.
LIAFA students have a high success rate in receiving acceptance and scholarships to their first-choice art colleges.
Young Artist Program
For grades 3–7
Classes in drawing, painting, and sculpture are taught by professional artists. Serious academic training is presented step by step, in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere, so concepts are easier to grasp by younger students. Students learn skills that will prepare them for high school and college art-portfolio building.
“My daughter often says how thankful she was to be able to take classes at LIAFA. Her experience at LIAFA prepared her for art school and all its demands. She is confident and ready for all the challenges her teachers throw at her. Thank you for all that LIAFA did to help her on her creative path.”
-Mary, mother of college freshman at Hartford Art School
