K-12 teachers are invited to join us for this full day art conference at the Museum and Huntington Fine Arts in Greenlawn!
In the Museum, tour the Long Island Biennial and explore exhibit-related themes through close looking, idea sharing and activities in the galleries. Enjoy an inspiring presentation by keynote speaker, exhibiting artist and professor Leeanna Chipana. As the daughter of a Quechuan-Peruvian immigrant father and an American mother, her work focuses on indigenous representation and identity.

Darlene will lead a thoughtful & creative openended collage project!
