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.

Information Sessions will take place throughout the year.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

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 this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
