May at Lynn Museum / LynnArts

Coming up in May

Here’s what’s in store for May at Lynn Museum / LynnArts –

Life Drawing

Life Drawing at LynnArts goes on location for ArtWeek 2018!

Work from a model in a leotard in a rich, warm environment with lots of composition potential. Expand your drawing techniques to include more than just the model – add an environment in which to set her!

Notes: We now have some easels for you to use! If you’d like an easel, come early. We also have tables and chairs. Also, bring art materials and drop cloths if you will be using paints. This is an open studio, not a class. 

Contact Annette Sykes for further information at 617-909-9211 or

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Lynn Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.  #artweekma #ArtWeekLynn

When you visit Downtown, you just can’t get enough.  So join us as we highlight History, for all of you to see. There’ll be Buskers on each block and the perfect place to stop for a Photo op. We’ll open up the gates to some Art Shows (plural).  And be sure not to miss the latest
large-scale mural.

The museum will be open 10am-3pm.
Tours start here at Lynn Museum, 590 Washington Street at 11:00am and 2:00pm. This is a free event sponsored by the Downtown Lynn Cultural District
and the Lynn Museum.

Volunteer Tour Guide Opportunities
at the Lynn Museum!

Interested in becoming a tour guide at the Lynn Museum? We’re seeking new guides to lead groups through our exhibits, including K-12 students and the general public.  

Ideal candidates will have weekday availability, an interest in educating with museum artifacts, and an enthusiasm for interacting with the public. Experience in education is a plus but not required. No special background in history of Lynn is needed – we will provide training.


If interested or for more information, please contact Judith Marshall, Education Manager or at 781-581-6200.
