Thacher Island Art & Photo Days

Artists are invited to create on Thacher Island during our annual Thacher Island Art & Photo Days. It is the one time of year that artists can go out on a pre-dawn launch to experience SUNRISE on Thacher Island!

This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Thacher Island with its twin lighthouses and restored structures, visit the museum, and wander the trails, to draw, paint, and photograph as you wish.

Reserve your spot as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! There are very limited spots and they will fill up fast!
