Find Yourself at Art Lab
Art Lab is an Art School and Gallery located on the beautiful grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center, offering fine art, applied art and photography classes during the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons. Founded by artists 48 years ago as an artist collective, today Art Lab classes are still taught by professional teaching artists who studied art in college and have continued to practice art making and exhibiting work. Classes are available for children, young artists, teens, and adults, starting at age 3 with Pre-k Art.
At Art Lab, children enjoy the tradition of creative art making, learning from real artists mostly living in the Staten Island community. Camp Picasso for children and Camp Kandinsky for preschoolers are summer staples at Art Lab where children make art in various media such as drawing, painting, collaging and sculpting. All campers receive a free Art Lab t-shirt to color on their first day of camp. Weather permitting, campers will explore the grounds and play. Full and half days are available. Rolling registration all summer long, until camp fills, and session options for 2,4,6 or 8 weeks makes it convenient and flexible for busy summer schedules.
Art classes are available all year, including summer, for children and adults. Children’s Art, Young People’s Art, Comic Book Art, Pre-K Art, Teen Ceramic, Teen Painting and Drawing, Anime and Manga are some offerings for youth. Adults classes include painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, jewelry making, drone flight, digital photo, watercolor, and stained glass. Art Lab provides many other services to the Staten Island community with programs, events, and gallery exhibitions. For those looking for a more involved arts program, there is the Summer Studio Scholarship Program intensive, where teen and adult students refine their arts skills in a studio setting working with university level teaching artists. Art Lab also hosts birthday parties, Girl Scout art badge workshops and class visits too. Visit Art Lab’s Annual Open House on September 9th for a day of free demos and mini-classes.
