"Lynn creates a special kind of magic in her studio." 

For nearly 30 years, artist and Brooks School visual arts teacher Lynn McLoughlin has run the popular PassionArt studio classes for children, teens and adults out of the wonderful old barn at her home in North Andover.

This summer, she's seized the opportunity to offer clay classes and art parties at Brooks School — in the new Center for the Arts on campus — and will continue programming throughout the year.

“Classes with Lynn are more than 'how to make art.' They are about how to look at the world, observe it with all your senses and be open to whatever you experience.”Artists of all ages will get the chance to enjoy the Center for the Arts' new ceramics studio, pottery wheels and more.
