Enjoy a summer of creativity!

SAA photo by Rachel Scelfo For more than 20 years The Art League of Long Island’s Summer Art Adventure Program has been offering kids and teens fun and creative activities led by dedicated art education professionals. Art Adventurers explore a variety of visual arts mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, found-object art and more. Age appropriate projects are geared to expand students’ artistic horizons by improving knowledge and skills. The atmosphere is inspiring and fun. A salon-style art exhibit for family and friends is held at the end of each session. Flexible options allow you to choose one or all program sessions.

Kids ages 5-10 participate in weekly activities centered on exciting themes such as “Wild Kingdom”, where kids draw inspiration from live animal models. Weekly programs start July 11 and end week of August 8. Mature Artists ages 11-14 can hone their artistic skills in one or both 12 day sessions beginning July 11 and July 28. Summer Pre-College Portfolio Development for ages 14-18 prepares students for winning portfolios designed to help them gain acceptance into higher education or program of choice. Two three-week sessions start July 11 and August 1.

Programs for Early Childhood (ages 5 & 6) 9am-11:30am, Young Artists (ages 7-10) 9am-2pm, and Mature Artists (ages 11-14) 9am-2pm are held off-site in air conditioned rooms at Chestnut Hill Elementary School in Dix Hills.
