The beauty of Mackinac Island encourages artists to relax, focus on their creativity and thrive in the company of their fellow students and the instructor. We have some wonderful local and regional artists lined up for our weekly Workshops at the Museum, held at the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum. The classes offer a broad range of media from painting to metals! New this year, we will also host four extended workshops (scroll down for more information).
With a spectacular backdrop, our summer concert series takes place on the lawn of a National Historic Landmark-Marquette Park at the foothills of Historic Fort Mackinac downtown across from the marina. Bring a picnic and tune in for some great live folk, rock, country, blues-the best of Americana.
All concerts are free. We do recommend bringing a blanket or lawn chairs for your comfort. Thursdays in July 8pm-9pm.
