About Studio E:
Studio E is an art education center for students of all ages. The studio is 2000 square feet and features a large pottery studio and a private portfolio room for students working on college portfolios. Our goal is to challenge students by creating a safe space for creating, while pushing students to new levels of technical ability with each class. Notable artists and art movements are incorpoated into most lessons, creating an educational and inspiring environment. All of our teachers are practicing artists, showing in galleries across Long Island. Children's classes are taught by certified art teachers and most instructors have a minimum of a Bachelors degree in Fine Art.
STUDIO E is a privately owned art and pottery studio, offering classes for all ages and levels.
STUDIO E has been offering art instruction to the community since 1991. Weekly classes are offered in all fine art mediums, crafts, sculpture and ceramics for pre-schoolers through adults and, as always, all materials are included in the class price.
In addition to fine arts classes, we have potters wheels and two ceramic kilns for creating ceramic sculpture and pottery pieces. A professional printing press is also available for learning about various non-toxic printmaking techniques.
STUDIO E hosts special events and workshops, art birthday parties, scout troops, family art nights and student art show exhibitions. All weekly classes are taught by Certified Art Teachers who are also practicing artists. Learning about art history-the fun way- is also a large part of a well rounded art education at Studio E. The studio encourages students both young and old to produce artwork that is fullfilling and visually stimulating. Several of our teen and adult students have shown their work in local art shows and gallery openings. Studio E is a working art studio and the teachers enjoy the company of other artists that are intrinsically motivated to learn more about the fine arts.
Studio E also offers High School Portfolio to juniors and seniors that are looking to continue their career in college. The studio has had many students attend the finest art schools in New York and beyond.
The studio offers serveral workshops and special events throughout the year. Some events include a student art show, figure drawing from nude models, and trips to the Metropolitian Museum of Fine Arts, and MOMA.
Studio E was purchased by Michelle Posner-Stylianou and Stelios Stylianou in March of 2012. Michelle worked for the former owner as an art teacher for three years before purchasing Studio E from him. Owning the studio has been a dream come true for this art couple and they are excited to expand and grow with the business!
