Lillstreet Summer Camps

Kidstreet Summer Camps at Lillstreet offer a wide variety of programs for children of all ages. Each week of camp, students ages 3 through young adult add to the lively Lillstreet community, working and learning among professional artists of all media. We pride ourselves in our creative instructors and guided learning experiences designed to maximize each child’s personal creativity. Each student is seen as an individual with a unique voice, and every student is taught to create fearlessly, focusing on the process of making art more than on the end result. Most importantly, we foster a relaxed and non-competitive environment in the classroom and everyone has lots of fun! The techniques students develop at Lillstreet do not stop here; students use their new skills artistically, interpersonally and also academically for years to come.

Some camps include a field trip to a cultural/arts institution in Chicago. All admission and transportation costs for field trips are included in tuition.
