Lillstreet Art Center offers a wide variety of summer camps for children and teens ages 3-16 in multimedia and specialized art forms including pottery, movie making, photography, fashion design, jewelry, comics, painting and more. Each day, campers add to the lively Lillstreet community, working and learning alongside professional artists. Each student is seen as an individual with a unique voice. Instructors foster a relaxed and non-competitive environment in the classroom and everyone has lots of fun! At the end of each week, parents and guardians are invited to an end-of-camp art show, featuring all of the campers' hard work.
With over 200 camps to choose one, there's something every young artist will enjoy! Explore some of our favorites below, and view our full summer schedule at lillstreet.com.
