About us

Hello, and welcome to Professor Gizmo's Workshop! My name is Gary Deslaurier, and my wife Annie and I have been teaching building, science and art based enrichment classes and summer programs at schools throughout the Rhode Island area for over fifteen years. We currently offer programs in local private schools, enrichment in the Barrington Public Schools, as well as many community organizations and museums. As guest artists, we have enjoyed teaching at The Pennfield School, New Art Center in Newton, Ma, and at Walnut Hill School for the Arts. Our workshops are open to the public through the Bay Spring Community Center in Barrington, RI.


As part of our community involvement, we have participated in The Robot Block Party in Providence, the Steam Connections event at Barrington High School, Primrose Hill and Hampden Meadows School Math and Science Nights, and Family Night events at the Gordon School. We currently offer  Second Sundays with Professor Gizmo, a free program of art and building at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA.

We hope to see you at our next event!
