Plan your creative escape!

Each summer for nearly 50 years, more than 250 people have gathered in northern Wisconsin for a week of study, performance, exhibits, and other creative activities. More than 50 workshops in body/mind/spirit; food and fitness; art and folk art; music; digital media; and writing are offered. Participants can choose from any and all one, two, and five-day classes to craft their own mix for creative exploration and renewal. Additional School of the Arts activities, and activities throughout the Rhinelander area, round out the week.

Registration is now open for the 2012 School of the Arts at Rhinelander, July 22-July 27.
