PenArt Responses to COVID-19

Last updated: May 2, 2020
This page will be updated regularly with relevant information for Peninsula School of Art visitors, students and faculty.

As we learn more each day about the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that continuing to plan for workshops and events this summer is not in the best interests of our community. We have made the difficult to decision to cancel all previously announced in-person programs and events through August 30, 2020.

Time at PenArt brings with it a transformative mix of inspiration, new skills and connections - and it is devastating to not be able to offer that to our community. These cancellations also represent a major financial hardship for our organization. Still, the health and safety of our staff, students, instructors, and neighbors will always come first, and we know this decision is the best one we could make during these difficult times.

Until we can be together again, we will be exploring new ideas and offering virtual programs to deliver art, inspiration and community, including: taking  our monthly Critique Group and Conversations on Creativity online, launching a new Distant Mentorship program and planning a virtual option to the Door County Plein Air Festival.

In addition, we have rescheduled a number of workshops and are looking forward to an exciting season of fall workshops and programs beginning August 31.

This loss of programming, also brings with it significant financial impacts. If you are able to make a contribution during during this time, we would be truly grateful. You will help us weather this storm to be here for you in the future.

We are available by calling 920.868.3455 or email. We are grateful for the people who make up the PenArt community and look forward to welcoming all of you back here again, very soon.
