Lillstreet at Lakeside

The historic Lakeside Inn has been a fabled artist's retreat for over a century. That tradition continues this summer, when Lillstreet Art Center brings its outstanding reputation for art instruction to Lakeside's beautiful lakefront studios and classrooms.


Be inspired by idyllic surroundings as you experience one- to three-day workshops with nationally-renowned artists and Lillstreet's excellent staff. Pair it with a stay at the Lakeside Inn or the neighboring Gordon Beach Inn for a relaxing and creative getaway.
