Idyllwild Arts Summer Program


Idyllwild's summer program offers intensive, hands-on workshops in dance, film, music, theater, visual arts and creative writing to students of all ages and ability levels. Programs include the Children's Art Center (day and boarding programs for children ages 5-12), Junior Arts Center (ages 11-13) and Youth Art Center (13-18). All workshops are taught by professional artist-teachers. Weeklong festivals and special programs add dimension and depth to specific artistic pursuits. Idyllwild schedules one family camp week each summer. Some programs are first-come, first-served, while others have selective admissions and require an audition.
