Is your kid consumed by visual story telling? Have they memorized all the characters in the Marvel Universe? If so, we have the perfect outlet for their love of mutant powers and supernatural abilities. Gary John Reynolds will be teaching Superhero summer camp August 1 - 5.When he’s not teaching 8-12 year olds about proportion, perspective, and foreshortening, this mild mannered artist teaches drawing and relief printmaking at Salem State University in Salem, MA.

Summer camp is here!

It’s an exciting week here at Lillstreet Art Center because summer camps have started. When you teach kids, be prepared to be amazed and surprised by their enthusiasm, creativity, and the thoughtfulness of the things they make. We’ll be posting such moments from summer camp on our blog so you can be amazed with us.

We also wanted to share information about an upcoming show for one of our teachers, Sarah Kaiser. Sarah will be teaching CLAY & MULTIMEDIA, TEEN DRAWING & PAINTING, and WHEEL THROWING camps at Lill Street this summer.
