Save Our Spirit!
The Spirit of Huntington Art Center is pleased and proud to announce its intention to acquire the building at 2 Melville Road North in South Huntington, where it has been leasing space from the South Huntington Union Free School District for the past 8 years.
Artists Come Alive
One of our most popular programs presents a set of weekly classes, each with a focus on a well-known artist that has overcome personal challenges in pursuit of their craft.
The class is presented an interactive slideshow presentation on the life of the artist, and then moves on as students create their personal masterpieces in the artist’s style. All students are welcome as individuals, from local agencies, from within the community.
Clay Comes Alive
This innovative program is led by an experienced artist and ceramicist, working with individuals to ignite their passion for creative expression through physical interaction with clay. Students create their own pieces that are then kiln fired, and glazed with colors of their choice.
Those attending come from all backgrounds, some with disabilities, others recovering from illness, or simply attending for the joy of working with the physical medium clay provides.
With unemployment at 85% for young adults with special needs, we help educate those who have aged out of the school districts and move them into digital art and graphic design.
ArtWORKS is an innovative program enrolling students in digital art and design courses, offering graduates a path to careers with companies that need workers with media design skills. Students receive hands-on training through experiential learning in today’s digital sphere to complete courses in graphic design.
Even with the rain and clouds, Spirit of Huntington was able to make the best out of the day filled with music, delicious food and laughter!
