About Star Arts

In 2018, the Star Arts conference will be held from Saturday, June 16 - Saturday, June 23.

First and foremost, Star Arts celebrates creativity and community. Attendees come from as far away as California and as close as Portsmouth, NH to share this special week of relaxation, inspiration, and close connections.

Whether you are a beginner or professional, an active participant or interested observer, Arts offers a chance to celebrate your uniqueness and explore your artistic impulses in a breathtaking and supportive environment.

Days start with many options including tea and coffee on the porch, chi gong, a jog along the outer path, a quick dip in the Atlantic, and a hearty breakfast.

Two-hour arts workshops complete each weekday morning. Go for tried and true or take a chance. Explore photography, visual arts, writing, dance, drama or music. Let your heart lead and spend the week perfecting your technique!

Afternoons offer free time for working on art projects, exploring the island, or joining activities like singing in chorus, making jewelry, playing softball, or porch-sitting in your favorite rocking chair!

Evening events, artist performances, and candlelight Chapel services round out the day's activities. (And, if you're still hungry, the snack bar is open late!)

The atmosphere on Star Island encourages creative risk taking, and is bound to inspire and reward you in many ways. That's why so many past participants and workshop leaders return year after year. Each day brings new opportunities to stretch your creative wings, connect with nature, and grow closer to others who are sharing the Arts experience.

We hope you will join us.
