Join us for a special collaboration art show as The Spirit of Huntington Art Center welcomes The Teaching Studios of Oyster Bay for an exhibit that will highlight some of the amazing work coming out of Long Island’s best traditional art school. All benefits of the show will support veteran art classes and give our soldiers the opportunity to engage in their own unique creative expression.

Our students recently created “identity collages” inspired by illustrator and artist, Martin O’Neill. For over 20 years O’Neill has been creating unique collages for a wide range of international clients encompassing advertising, design, editorial and publishing. Each of our students used this approach to create a unique collage which represents their own personalities, likes, hopes and dreams. Come down to the art center and check these masterpieces out while they’re up!
Our students from 5 different classes created subway poster art similar, to that of artist Keith Haring, on black board with white chalk. Students represented themselves in both words and drawings, like that of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The final piece was then photographed and digitally applied to their very own business card, reflecting their own stories, and ultimately, their “brand.”
We had a blast once again this year at our spectacular summer art camp. It was a wonderful week of learning and creating, and having lots of fun! Our students’ hard work and dedication was evident in the culminating art show on Friday, where our campers proudly displayed their beautiful artwork that they created all week. We’d like to give special thanks to all our parents, teachers and support staff that contributed to make this camp a reality. And of course, congratulations to all our growing artists!

The Spirit of Huntington Art Center and the South Huntington school district once again had a fantastic time collaborating with the Heckscher Museum to produce yet another wonderful art show, displaying the children’s artwork for the conclusion of our 10-week art class sessions. This final show of the school year was especially vibrant, as it included twice as much student artwork! We combined the beautiful creations of both sessions 2 and 3 as we came together at the museum to share the art with friends and family. Click below for more photos!
Friends, family, students, teachers, and all of LT Cherokee’s ‘seeds’ came together this past weekend for a very special event that showcased (for the first time ever!) most of LT’s sculptures, together in one unified space. His pieces were brought in from not only local spots, but from as far as Canada. It was a beautiful evening celebrating the life, love, and artwork of our beloved friend and master sculptor, LT Cherokee.
