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:

Support Independent Indigenous Journalism

Native News Online is an independent, Indigenous-led newsroom with a crucial mission:  We want to change the narrative about Indian Country. We do this by producing intelligent, fact-based journalism that tells the full story from all corners of Indian Country.  We pride ourselves on covering the tribes you may have never heard of before and by respecting and listening to the communities we serve through our reporting. As newsrooms across the country continue to shrink, coverage of Indian Country is more important than ever, and we are committed to filling this ever-present hole in journalism.

Because we believe everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities, the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. But we hope it inspires you to make a gift to Native News Online so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount, big or small, gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change.
