    Into The Brush is an art program to teach people how to paint using our fabulously beautiful Boundary Waters wilderness as our subject. Lessons taught by Ely artist, Joe Baltich.

    In appreciation for your checking us out, we’ll deduct 10% from the cost of all regular programming options except the Micro Art Classes (first-time students to Into The Brush) when you reserve. Just mention the promo code “Reduce your Stress” at the time of reservation.

    This is the perfect program to learn to reduce stress, how to paint, and enjoy the solitude of our wilderness at Northwind Lodge.

    Some of the comments made by beginning students while painting during classes at Northwind Lodge:

    “Gosh, I’m having such a great time!”
    “This is SO relaxing!”
    “I should have tried this years ago!”

    Unlike painting companies and franchises, we have a lifetime of experience working in the tourism industry at a resort in the northwoods of Minnesota. Our classes are small (1-8 people) and we prefer to be able to talk to individuals as questions arise to give them the best experience possible. We also have a regular commissioned artist running the classes at all times. We feel that a commissioned artist is the best way to participate in art classes such as these.
