With a beautiful wooded setting and a main building inspired by Door County's octagonal barns, the Peninsula School of Art campus serves as a hub for the area's art colony.

Artists from across the country come for the school's biggest event, the Plein Air Festival, in late July. It's an ideal time to catch artists in action, painting at easels set up in Door County harbors, along the wooded shore or above favorite vistas. Paintings are auctioned to the public in Fish Creek.
