The Long Island Academy of Fine Art is Long Island’s oldest classical art school. We train students in the methods and techniques of classical representational art, with summer and year-round programs for children (kids ages 8 – 13), teens (high-school portfolio preparation), and adults of all levels and abilities. Our warm, caring, and energetic youth instructors are outstanding professional artists with MFA training and years of experience working with young people.

Summer classes include week-long camp or weekend class options for younger students, and summer-long classes for high-schoolers and adults, in observational drawing, still-life drawing and painting, figure and portrait classes, landscape, history and theory, and sculpture. Drop by the school or call us to set up a trial class or talk with our youth or portfolio advisors. Summer classes start soon—we look forward to seeing you here!

A truly wonderful way to learn more about the arts. Our son has been having an incredible time and he has really developed as a painter since we enrolled him. It was a an excellent decision.

We've sent two children here and they both had a wonderful time, working on very different projects. These programs are much higher quality than anything your child's high school or middle school offer, especially their portfolio preparation programs. I wish I'd had something like this when I was young. I might've actually had a shot at a career in art!

My son goes to the art academy and he is always bringing home some amazing new thing he's been working on! He just loves the classes, and looks forward to them all week. He also has met a lot of really nice friends here. I'm so glad he has a place he feels like he can fit in and accomplish something. It's done wonders for his self esteem, and he has been doing truly beautiful work.

Our daughter Judy is intent on going to art school. Admission would be impossible without a portfolio though, and while she has some pieces she said she'd be happy showing off, she said that she really wanted to do more with some guidance, and maybe branch out a bit with her technique. We enrolled her in the Portfolio Development Program, and she did a number of new pieces for her portfolio. She said it was a good experience, since she was able to train up in methods which admissions boards would recognize--whereas her own styles don't exhibit that knowledge. She's going to apply to colleges next year. We can't wait to see where she gets admitted. She's really done some wonderful work since joining the academy.

My 8-year-old grandson loved to draw. He was constantly at it without prompting from the family. So I enrolled him at LIAFA. Since then, he has made a great leap forward in the quality of his work. The combination of personal drive along with expert guidance has produced dramatic results. We are all happy! Brion Hathaway

The Academy has changed my life. I have been exposed to learning opportunities in art that will be a lifelong endeavor. Try to imagine the feeling of wonder and discovery when creating a painting, then you will understand the drive to come here: for the level of the instructors is at the mastery tier, and the companionship of the other students is so enjoyable. Robert Armetta, the director, says he wanted to create a community of artists. He has, and I'm so glad I'm one of them.
