Please join us for an Idyllwild Arts Virtual Information Session!

Idyllwild Arts is excited to announce a series of online Information Sessions and Q&As designed specifically for Native American students and their families. If you or your child(ren) are interested in attending the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program (all ages) or the Idyllwild Arts Academy (9-12 grade + Post grad), be sure to join us for one of the four sessions.  

Since 1950, Idyllwild Arts has excelled in arts education. Some of Indian Country's most acclaimed artists have come through Idyllwild Arts as teachers, guests, performers, and students. When you attend an Information Session you will have the opportunity to speak with alumni, current staff and select arts faculty. We will share information about attending high school or summer camp on our beautiful mountain campus, online learning opportunities, and our new pilot Gap Year program, as well as scholarship opportunities. In a new world where online engagement is the norm, we are also excited to share unique workshops, masterclasses and programs that anyone can join from anywhere.

The Idyllwild Arts Academy is the country’s premier and internationally-acclaimed residential arts high school which provides pre-professional training in the arts and a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum to a diverse student body of gifted young artists. The Academy’s 300 students hail from more than 32 countries. The Academy offers majors in:

The Summer & Auxiliary Programs offer a full range of workshops for all ages, including workshops for Teens and Kids,  Adults, and a full Native American Arts program offering workshops, lectures and performances by outstanding Native American artists, scholars, and culture bearers. Auxiliary Programs workshops will inspire your artistic and creative spirit, and they are the perfect enhancement to regular school curriculum.

Information Sessions will take place throughout the year.

Native News is free to read.

We hope you enjoyed the story you've just read. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps.  Most readers donate between $10 and $25 to help us cover the costs of salaries, travel and maintaining our digital platforms. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to join the Founder's Circle. All donations help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
