The heart of the Art League of Long Island is its distinguished and dedicated faculty.
In advance of the fall semester, the Art League of Long Island honors them in an
exhibition of their personal work.   

The Art League's faculty is comprised of well-respected, award-winning artists who also
share a common goal of excellence in teaching art to students of all ages and abilities.
 They are dedicated to introducing new techniques and materials to their students, challenging them to root out compositional clich├ęs and
 getting them to think about their work in new ways.

In addition to its long-time group of master teachers in the classic areas of painting,
drawing, ceramics, and sculpture, the Art League is making waves in presenting
new classes and workshops that go beyond the traditional forms of expression. 
For example, one of their newest faculty members, a professional goldsmith,
takes knitting to another level as she teaches students how to create unique jewelry
by knitting with metal wire. 
Teaching artists also conduct classes in mosaic design, fused glass,
digital photography, painting on silk to make wearable art,
and other specialized jewelry techniques.

Admission to the exhibit is open to the general public at no charge
Monday through Friday 9am - 4pm and on Saturdays 11am - 4pm.  
The gallery will be closed Monday September 6 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
