MISSA is a terrific program for arts -- consider making your summer learning my class, maybe followed by a week-long workshop by another instructor! Look at these photos of the fabulous location for MISSA, which takes place at Pearson College of the Pacific right on the shore of Pedder Bay.
From their website, this is the MISSA Mission Statement
To foster the arts in British Columbia by bringing together, in a
fiscally responsible manner, in an environment rich in natural and
artistic stimulation, acclaimed practicing artists to share their
knowledge and inspire serious students and professionals to explore
and develop their artistic fields in a multi-disciplinary milieu.
Aims and Objectives:
To provide the maximum benefit to the individual student through an
inspired analytical teaching approach with small class size.
Dunno if anyone else has such a combined interest in writing and paddling, but I'm intending to paddle before and after both days of teaching my workshop! Hope to see some writing and paddling friends there.
