This annual exhibit affords an opportunity for hundreds of students from across Long Island to display their artwork in a museum setting.

Art teachers from grades K through 12 are invited to submit up to two pieces, either created individually or by groups.  Submissions are limited to two individual pieces or one group project per school.  Traditionally, the theme, “Colors of Long Island,” allows for many creative interpretations. While some students refer to Long Island’s landscapes, others prefer to focus on the cultural diversity that makes Long Island so colorful. The varying interpretations of this theme are portrayed through many different media, including watercolors, sculptures, quilts, drawings, oil pastels, photographs and computer graphics.  Register your class here.
