As it has for the past 40 seasons, Summer Festival of the Arts - SFOA - on Mount Desert Island, once again presents a three-week arts experience for young people.
Most of our participants live on Mount Desert Island year-round, but we also have many summer visitors from across the state of Maine and beyond. SFOA encourages community and cooperation among all of our students and their families, our teachers and staff, and the greater artistic community of MDI and surrounding areas.
The three weeks culminate in a week-end Grand Finale that provides the participants an opportunity to perform, present or display their creativity.
Artists, whose common goal is to inspire the imagination and have fun, teach the classes!
