On this day last year, April 15th 2014, we lost our beloved friend LT Cherokee. LT was a world-wide accomplished sculptor, and an all around incredible human being. He loved people and wanted to give everyone a piece of himself, his life and love, and ultimately his art… because Len liked to say that he was spreading seeds. We honor him today, and everyday, in our hearts and souls. We love and miss you, LT.
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”
-Robert Lewis Stevenson

Join the fun this summer as we present our annual Summer Art Camp! Each year we have had more and more fun and lots of new teachers as well as students joining us. Please register soon as we have a limited number of spaces as we like to keep teacher to student ratios low. We always have a blast and this summer promises to be better than ever! Students of all abilities welcome.

The Spirit of Huntington Art Center and the South Huntington school district once again had an amazing time collaborating with the Heckscher Museum to produce a wonderful show displaying the children’s artwork for the conclusion of our 10-week art class. Session 2 is now underway and we are looking forward to our next upcoming show!
Our holiday party had a wonderful turnout of students, parents, teachers, friends and many more special guests! We enjoyed tree decorating art projects, dancing with Con to the oldies, and a special viewing of Erich’s train display. Erich also presented a painting to a young recent fallen Army hero and then honored Mr. Martenelli with a Color Guard Flag Ceremony, courtesy of the Patriot Guard. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate with us!
We’ll see you there for a night of holiday fun!! All are welcome!
You asked, we listened….

This past Thursday celebrated the artwork of our talented founder, Erich Preis. The extensive collection of paintings and sculptures created by Erich represent his lifelong journey in which he struggled, and conquered, Autism. Our opening party showcasing Erich’s exhibit marked a beautiful evening full of love, family & friends, and a heartfelt speech by Erich dedicating the show to our beloved departed friend and sculpture teacher, LT Cherokee. Stop in to the art center, at 2 Melville Rd. N, Huntington Station, NY 11746, to experience Erich’s “Images of Storm” Reflection of Autism exhibit while it’s displayed for the next several weeks!
