GENERAL INFORMATION
OUR MISSION
Maine Media Workshops + College educates and inspires
visual artists and storytellers. The school delivers degree
and certificate programs, workshops, intensives, and co-
operative labs geared to students pursuing creative work
in fine arts and media-related professions. MMW+C is a
welcoming community that provides lifetime opportuni-
ties to explore the practice and concepts of media arts in
photography, filmmaking, design and book arts as well as
the converging applications of these dynamic media
forms. MMW+C embraces historical processes as well as
leading-edge technologies in image making and narrative
expression. MMW+C is committed to fostering creativity,
culture, and human communication in the world.

MIDCOAST MAINE
Midcoast Maine’s picturesque small towns and coastal land-
scape provide a colorful community and stunning backdrop
for our students and their creative endeavors. The area is
home to award-winning restaurants, museums, galleries, bou-
tiques, and bookstores, and well as a wide range of outdoor
activities including hiking, sailing, swimming, and paddling.

YOUR WEEK AT A GLANCE
Students arrive on campus on Sunday afternoon, and gather
in the Sound Stage after dinner to be welcomed by staff and
instructors. Classes begin at 9AM on Monday morning. On
Monday and Tuesday nights during the summer, selected vis-
iting faculty participate in our Masters Lecture Series held in
the beautiful Rockport Opera House. Free and open to the
public, these fascinating presentations about the artists’ work
and careers are always inspiring. After a full week of creative
immersion, we celebrate your accomplishments with a Friday
night lobster dinner (alternatives are always available) and a
communal screening of student work. Many workshops will
end then but some may meet briefly on Saturday morning.
