Back from Madeline Island

Wow!  And island in Lake Superior is a fabulous place to spend a week.  Here are a few pictures of our Series As Process workshop at Madeline Island School of the Arts. In addition to the workshop space being well appointed and well laid out, the meals were terrific, there were beverages of all sorts available at all times (water, seltzer, coffee, soda, wine) at no cost, great wifi in every building, and bicycles available for anyone's use.  The staff seemed delighted to attend to our every need.  The studio is accessible twenty-four hours, so students could work at night if they chose, or go in early in the morning.  And the island is beautiful!

Big Bay State Park is just up the road, with hiking trails, beaches, places to jump into the lake.  And the Big Bay Town Park offers access to a beautiful lagoon and an awesome beach, with canoe and kayak rentals.  With daylight extending until about 9:00 pm, I was able to explore both of these parks in the evenings, hiking along the shore, canoeing in the lagoon, and I did jump in the lake (brrrr!) too.

I will definitely be returning to MISA in 2019, July 22 - 26.
