McMillan School of Fine Arts Vacation School entrance, Rome, 1933

Contributed by Hollingsworth Fine Arts

The McMillan School of Fine Arts Vacation School was established by the artist and illustrator Mary Lane McMillan and her musician husband George McMillan. During the 1920s and 1930s their summer home in Rome, Maine (located on Crystal Springs Camp Road) was used as a camp for vacation session students from their residence-studio school in New Rochelle, NY. Mary taught art classes outdoors to take advantage of the scenic beauty of the camp's surroundings.

The McMillan School of Fine Arts operated a vacation school in Rome, fifteen miles from Oakland, on the shore of Great Pond.

Summer sessions lasted fourteen weeks, beginning the third week of June and ending the second week of September.
