School House Beach Poster



Schoolhouse Beach on Washington Harbor, where generations of island children have learned to swim and then raced to be the first to the raft, is one of the main island destinations of young and old alike.  Its distinctively smooth stones and tranquil waters have made this a favorite of families for years.  In this  drawing of beach life, the artist has added some whimsical touches - such as the schooner Washington which sailed into the harbor in 1816; the bust of George Washington (for whom the island was named) outfitted with sunglasses since he's at the beach; the original school house; and the fanciful SCUBA diver, flying porpoises and freighters in the clouds. The mother and child in the foreground playing ring around the rosy make us all nostalgic for the days we spent as children at Schoolhouse Beach.  This poster brings back all those memories and more. Printed on heavy stock paper, it measures 18" x 24" and is ready for a standard frame.  This poster is available in two versions:  a Washington Island version and a Door County version.  Please specify which version you would like in the Notes section at the end of the ordering process or send your choice to  This Washington Island design is also available on a mug.
