About Us

Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) is ranked among the top five art and craft schools in the country. The school is located on Madeline Island, the largest of the 22 Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. The Island has an art and craft tradition that dates back more than three hundred years during which time three different flags have flown on her shores.

MISA’s workshop environment is known for its world renowned instructors, spacious studios, superior on-site accommodations, and a staff that will ensure an unforgettable experience.

Board the car ferry in our charming port town of Bayfield, WI and in twenty minutes you’ll slip into Island time. Or if you are flying to Duluth, MN take our airport shuttle to our front door. Let the magic of the Island inspire you!
