Lillstreet is quite a gem of an art center. With an inspiring variety of permanent and visiting faculty teaching a wide assortment of affordable classes including embroidery, soda fire and inkoku, encaustic painting, resin for jewelry, glassblowing, and bookmaking. Just writing this is kinda making me jealous of all the folks who get to work and play over there. So hurry up! If you're looking for a residency with tons of opportunity in a variety of mediums in a fabulous city- send in that application.
