College of the Atlantic has been offering summer courses and workshops for close to 40 years. Our goal is to educate and inspire life-long, experiential learning through “hands-on” courses that appeal to both new and our ever-growing list of returning participants. Learning will include on-campus studio or lab work, informal discussions or lectures, and field trips out and about in Mount Desert Island’s picturesque Acadia National Park and the outer islands of Frenchman Bay.

Join other learners in 2020 for an instructive summer course!
