Peninsula School of Art: Turning Inspiration into Fine Art
For 48 years, we've fostered the talents and skills of each student - from novice to professional - with small class sizes and by well equipping our studios with the right tools for expression. Located in a garden setting under towering trees, we are the Midwest's destination for turning inspiration into fine art, and students into artists. Open all year, our light-filled, spacious studios host artist educators of the highest caliber. These artists not only love teaching, but also sharing the techniques that have made them successful. Master artists' works, displayed in educationally themed gallery exhibitions, reveal artists' processes free of charge to the public. During our annual Door County Plein Air Festival in July, 40 artists from throughout the US and points beyond paint the exquisite beauty of our Door County, WI peninsula.
Open Air Italy - Plein Air Workshops

All instructors are well-known artists with a gift for teaching. We want the participant to spend their time learning and painting, as well as living and relaxing, in the most beautiful areas of Europe. Much time and effort is given to everything, from the planning of accommodations to the choice of various charming painting locations. All accommodations are single occupancy for artists. Workshops are planned with a focus on multiple group activities, while still allowing time for individual expression and exploration. All instructed workshops are limited to eight participants in order to allow plenty of one-on-one time with the instructor. To learn more about specific workshops or retreats please visit
