Teaching at MISA

What a wonderful week I had at Madeline Island School of the Arts! MISA is one of the top art and craft schools in the country, and if you take a class there, you’ll find out why. A spectacular location. Tasty food, spacious classrooms, lovely housing, accommodating staff.

This building houses the dining room downstairs and a classroom upstairs.

This large building has two spacious classrooms.

The students in my five-day “Paint and Stitch” class did some outstanding work based on their own photos:

You take the ferry from Bayfield to Madeline Island.
The state park on Madeline Island has gorgeous walking trails with amazing views of Lake Superior. 

LaPointe, the smalll town on the island, is funky and arty, with restaurants, pubs and shops featuring local art and craft.

One of the highlights of the week was a cruise out to see the Apostle Islands. It was set up for a photography class offered the same week, and we were lucky enough to go along. I get seasick easily, but I was so glad I had gone. What views!
