Madeline is the largest of the 22 Apostle Islands located in Lake Superior. It is internationally known for its picturesque beauty, expansive sandy beaches and serene atmosphere.

Madeline Island School of the Arts is located at:

978 Middle Road, La Pointe, WI 54850 



For commercial flights we recommend Duluth International Airport (DLH), which is the closest Regional Airport (approximately 90 miles from Bayfield, WI). It is serviced by Delta and United Airlines as well as all major car rental agencies. Delta offers five daily flights from Minneapolis to Duluth. United has five daily flights from Chicago to Duluth. The frequency of these connections makes it easy to schedule your travel.

Plan to arrive to Duluth Airport the day before your workshop starts no later than 3:00 pm in order to get to MISA in time to check in and attend our Welcome Reception.

For departure, you may fly home on the last day of your workshop or the next day. If you chose to fly out the next day, you may either stay an extra night at MISA ($175) and fly out no earlier than 11 am, or take the shuttle to Duluth Friday afternoon and stay at a hotel near the airport.
