Intensive Summer Workshops
Each summer, Monson Arts programs a variety of short intensive workshops in our studios which provide an ideal environment to focus on learning and creative work. Taught by instructors renown in their field, these classes are designed to give participants unhindered time where they don’t have to think about anything other than making. Monson Arts provides all meals and the option of housing right in town within walking distance to all of our facilities. The studios are open 24 hours.
A typical workshop includes 10-15 participants and we are able to host two workshops at a time in our facilities. Sessions begin with dinner on arrival night and conclude before lunch on the final day. Workshops are open to anyone 18 or older and working at any level from beginners to advanced professionals. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis.
2024 Summer Workshops
Our lineup of Summer Workshops for 2024 offers many exciting opportunities to work alongside professional artists, writers, and media producers while engaging directly with the North Woods. We will be offering 4-6 day courses in writing and visual arts. New this year, we will be hosting the Conference of Poetry and Learning.
The cost to take a workshop includes tuition, room & board, and materials fees. We offer on-campus housing in a private (single) or double (shared with one other person) room. Room availability is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you do not need housing, you may register as a day student at a reduced rate. Whether staying on campus or off, all meals are included and prepared by the Quarry Fine Dining restaurant. Fees for materials and supplies will vary for each studio and can range from $25-$100.
TUITION, ROOM & BOARD
Varies for each program due to length.
If you are unable to register below because a workshop is full, please contact our office about being on the waitlist. We will let you if space becomes available.
More workshops will be added soon!
