Join me on Madeline Island!

I am excited to be adding a new workshop venue this year, I'll be teaching Fine Art Flower Photography at the Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA), June 11-15th. Imagine 5 days of flower photography heaven! 

About the school:

Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) is ranked among the top five art and craft schools in the country. The school is located in northern Wisconsin, on Madeline Island, the largest of the 22 Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. The Island is celebrated for its magnificent light and colors, creating an unparalleled setting for a week of creativity. Classes are held June through October in spacious studios, with superb on-site accommodations and a dedicated staff that will ensure an unforgettable experience.

About the MISA campus

The beautiful prairie meadow campus is located on the site of the historic Sandstrom Dairy Farm of Madeline Island.  All but one of the existing buildings are new and have been custom-designed to maximize the creative experience offered by the workshops. 

On-campus lodging is steps away from the studios and dining area, and is adjacent to the MISA apple orchard. Students can choose to stay in a shared room with bath en suite, a private room with shared bath en suite, or a private room with a private bath en suite.

A meal package is included with all on-campus lodging options, consisting of breakfast and lunch each day, and two on-campus dinners. Several restaurant options are available on Madeline Island and students are encouraged to explore the local offerings for dinners not provided on-campus. Unlimited healthy snacks and beverages are available at any time. Vegetarian and gluten free options are also available.

Spring flowers should be in abundance, we'll be shooting wild flowers as well as visiting a few local gardens. Each day includes a presentation, group critiques of student photos, and photographing flowers in Madeline Island gardens.The Lupine should be plentiful, one of my favorite Spring flowers to photograph! Join me!

Happy Shooting,
