Kidstreet Summer Camps at Lillstreet offer a wide variety of programs

2020

for children of all ages. Each week of camp, kids and teens add to the

Lillstreet Summer Camps

lively Lillstreet community, working and learning among professional artists of all media. We pride ourselves on 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. Together we learn to focus on the art process rather than the end result. Most importantly, we foster a relaxed and non-competitive environment in the classroom, and everyone has lots of fun! The techniques we develop at Lillstreet do not stop here; young artists are equipped to use their new skills artistically, interpersonally, and academically for years to come.

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