Portfolio Development Program
LIAFA’s portfolio-development program trains teens to acquire key observational skills, using time-honored classical techniques.
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, 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
The Long Island Academy of Fine Art offers a unique opportunity for young artists. Our program was created in the belief that children, if given the opportunity, are capable of producing adult-level work, as they did in the 19th-century French academies on which our training is based.
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.
TEENS may join our portfolio development and adult classes for weekly classes, or we can create a customized intensive program during the summer term. We work with your schedule and interests to create a personalized curriculum just for you. Limited enrollment.
Week-long sessions for GRADES 3-7 run all summer.
Please visit our Summer Program page for details.
