Montauk Artists' Association | Education

The original mission of the Montauk Artists' Association was to bring art and art education to the Montauk area residents and visitors. In 1998 the Association acquired the Montauk Railroad Station, which the Long Island Railroad had stopped using about 28 years before. Our good fortune included four years of concentrated fund raising in order to pay for our extensive reconstruction. The Town of East Hampton annual grant awards and the generous donations from our members allowed us to renovate the interior of the building from the floor of the basement up.  In 2003, we finished the second floor. Our first season of art classes was offered and was a success. Adult courses in pastel, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting, life drawing, photography and children's art keep our Depot studios buzzing from June into October. We have motivated students and first rate instructors.

Our updated 2017 class schedule for adults and children is listed below.    Classes are free for members of the Montauk Artists Association.
