Madeline Island School of the Arts is ranked among the top five art and craft schools in the country. We began our operations just six years ago, and currently offer five-day adult workshops in quilting, writing, photography, and painting.

We are located in La Pointe, WI, on one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior. A short ferry ride to our unique campus location amongst vast prairie fields adds to the charm and attraction of this destination workshop location.
