Getting to the Island is fun and easy! Fly into Duluth, Minnesota from either Chicago or Minneapolis, enjoy a picturesque lakeshore drive and a quaint, 20-minute car ferry ride. Then it’s Island Time and the perfect setting for a week of inspiration and creativity with magnificent light and colors from sunrise to sunset.
We operate our Island workshops from June to October, and then, in the winter and late spring, change to our MISA West campuses which are two of the most spectacular locations in the Southwest.
