This season, there's a new game at Haystack- it's called "drama king" and it's awesome. Our Studio Based Learning participants are having a blast playing with the supersized rackets built by @matthiaspliessnig and his session 5 wood class. .

Today marked the beginning of the 2017 Studio Based Learning program, an annual three-day studio program for area high school students. For twenty-three years the program has provided students with the opportunity to participate in workshops in craft media taught by professional artists. We welcome students from Deer Isle-Stonington High School, George Stevens Academy, the Harbor School in Blue Hill, Bucksport High School, Vinalhaven High School, and Mt. Desert Island High School studying blacksmithing, ceramics, fiber, graphics, metals, and wood. We couldn't be more excited to have such creative, capable young artists in our studios. .

For nearly 50 years, the Maine Arts Education Association (@MAEA) has been holding its annual Fall Conference at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. How fitting that this year -- when they meet on our campus to gather and offer workshops in the arts and share ideas in arts education -- that their program falls at the end of National Arts in Education week.⠀

MAEA is a statewide professional organization whose members are committed to excellence in visual arts education. Read more about MAEA (www.aeforme.org)⠀


@ayumihorie captured the shifts in weather on campus during "New Works"- our biennial retreat for past Haystack faculty . A terrific few days with an incredible group of people.
3 full days at @haystack_school over the weekend gave me the time and space I needed to finish a new longer video, which I'll post in parts soon. I'm very grateful to have spent time with such a smart and supportive group of educators. And always a beautiful setting no matter the weather!

Haystack is honored to have the Maine Crafts Association's Board of Trustees on campus this year for their annual meeting. For many years, each spring, MCA has hosted a 'Haystack Weekend' to the public - offering workshops in the studios on our campus. It has been a pleasure to have them here for their meeting today as well.⠀
The Maine Crafts Association (@maine_crafts_association) supports the work of makers from throughout the state with marketing, sales opportunities, business development, creative/artistic development, public education, networking, and high quality branding. ⠀

Last week, our studios were filled with alumni teachers for New Works, Haystack's biennial session for faculty and visiting artists, who return for a retreat to focus on their own work. New Works was developed as a major program in 1996, seeking to promote significant opportunities for distinguished artists to create new work and exchange ideas with peers in Haystack's celebrated studio setting, free from the responsibility of teaching. It was amazing to bring together so many familiar faces and see so much creativity flourishing on our campus. Here are some images of works created at Haystack last week, by Jan Owen, Paul Heroux, Crystal Cawley, and Aysha Peltz.

On a foggy day at Haystack, it can be difficult to tell where sea ends and sky begins...
