Lily deSaussure
Camp Director

After ten years of developing curriculum and creating art with campers at Camp Galileo and Galileo Summer Quest, Lily is thrilled to return for her third year as Camp Director. Lily has loved working with children and young adults since her first teaching job in high school. Recently she taught fine arts at several colleges in the Washington, DC, area. She earned a BFA in painting and drawing from California College of the Arts and the University of San Francisco and an MFA from American University. During the school year, she maintains a studio practice in New York and recruits Galileo summer staff. In 2015, she attended an artist residency at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Tennessee.
