"Capturing Northern Michigan" at the Kettunen Center was a terrific experience. It was my first Road Scholar Program and in fact it exceeded my expectations. Our group leader, Laura, our instructors Ruthie, Dianne, Jen, Charles and Mary were ALL top notch. They were giving of their time and talents and fun people. The facility, accommodations, meals, other staff and participants also were factors contributing to a positive, successful program. I highly recommend this Program.

As a first time participant, I am thoroughly pleased. I was amazed at how many "returnees" were present. I understand now and hope to return next year. Thanks to all, instructors, participants, staff and our leader, Miss Laura. Jim (red and white checked shirt)

I had a wonderful time and one of the best parts was meeting the other participants. They were, each and every one, awesome. I have been to this program before and will attend again.

Outstanding classes and total experience! Photography instructor was excellent and covered so much in a short time - he made it fun, exciting, informative but not overwhelming. Watercolor instructor was delightful - great instruction for all levels of experience and we were able create some wonderful paintings! The facilities were wonderful and the food was outstanding. I will return!

This was the best ever Road Scholar experience. It was welcoming to beginners like me as well as more accomplished artists and photographers. I learned a lot and have made many new friends.

My first Road Scholar trip and I hit the jackpot! Great instructors in all subjects, awesome leader, lodging, grounds, entertainment, food, staff, and fellow participants. I had fun, learned a lot and feel rejuvenated.

This program just can't be beat. I have been on about 5 Programs through the years, plus 5 (or 6!) here. I hesitate to praise it too much, I'll have to send in my reservation a year ahead of time! Three cheers for all who work to make this the successful event that it is. Leaders, instructors, cooks, housekeepers, maintenance people, and instructors (they deserve two mentions)!!

Carol from Jacksonville, Fl What great fun,beautiful surroundings, great food, and an outstanding art teacher, Mary Guntzmiller. This is my third RS watercolor workshop, and Mary is far and above the rest.

This program offers far more than described. I was challenged without being intimidated to stretch beyond my comfort zone physically, mentally, and creatively. It refreshed my view of the wonders of Northern Michigan and the talented people who make it their home.

If a wonderful relaxing retreat is on your bucket list ... attend a week long session at Kettunen Center. Beautiful, calm, inspiring, rejuvenating! Leadership and tutors of highest and talented quality. Food, delicious and nutritious. I loved every minute of my stay, cannot wait to sign up for next years watercolor class with Mary.

The watercolor classes with Mary Guntzviller are always interesting and entertaining as well as educational due to her wonderful sense of humor and willingness to share her many gifts with her students.
