Unique Island Setting, Exceptional Workshops

Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) is ranked among the top five art and craft schools in the country.  The school is located on Madeline Island, the largest of the 22 Apostle Islands in Lake Superior.  MISA’s workshop environment is known for its world renowned instructors, spacious studios, superior on-site accommodations, and a staff that will ensure an unforgettable experience.

The Island has an art and craft tradition that dates back more than three hundred years during which time three different flags have flown on her shores.

Your workshop experience begins when you board the car ferry in our charming port town of Bayfield, WI.  The ferry ride is twenty minutes over to the Island, where you’ll slip into “Island Time.”  

To assist you with your travel plans, we provide a roundtrip airport shuttle service from the Duluth International Airport, MN (DLH).  

Unique Island Setting

The MISA campus is a beautifully restored dairy farm, with state-of-the-art studios and lodging designed specifically for workshops. The facilities are situated in a peaceful prairie meadow setting that complements the natural beauty of the Island and its spirit of creativity.

Madeline Island is renowned for its quality and diversity of light and color.

Exceptional Facilities and Workshops

Instructors and students say that our spacious studios are among the best in the country.  Modern on-campus lodging is just steps away from the workshops which are open 24/7.  All facilities are climate controlled, with fiber optic Wi-Fi in every building.    

The school offers five-day workshops June – October in writing, plein air and studio painting, quilting, fiber arts and photography.  During this workshop season three simultaneous classes are scheduled each week to provide a unique creative experience for all students and instructors. 

Master instructors as well as students come to the school for the duration of their session.  Workshops are small in size and open to beginning, intermediate, and advanced students--in many cases welcoming all three.

We are known for our meals and hospitality—and are committed to excellence in service so you can focus on your creativity.
