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 exhibiting artist and art teacher Keith Gamache. He will discuss his paintings on pegboard and inspire unique hands-on activities for all grade levels. Next, get to know exhibiting artist and art teacher Darlene Blaurock. She creates mixed media works that express her views on social and cultural issues. Darlene will lead a thoughtful & creative open-ended collage project!
At Huntington Fine Arts, meet exhibiting artist Lauren Skelly Bailey, and get hands on with clay! Skelly Bailey sculpts formations and vessels with surfaces layered in texture with the use of slips, glazing with multiple firings, and alternative surface treatments. In addition, enjoy live model figure drawing and a multitude of interesting still-life setups to nurture your creative spirit!
