Idyllwild Arts Debuts “Virtual” Summer Program Reimagined
In response to the health pandemic, Idyllwild Arts announces that the 2020 Summer Program is moving online, expanding on Idyllwild Arts’ role as a leader in 21st-century arts education. For the first time in the program’s 71-year history, Idyllwild Arts pivot to virtual learning determined to continue inspiring artistic and creative spirit, particularly in these challenging times where art is vital to both expression and healing. The Summer Program runs from May 23, 2020, to early August with virtual workshops for students, aged 5 to adult, with a range of creative interests. Registration is now open for workshops at https://www.idyllwildarts.org/summer/summeronline/ and new workshops are being added daily. Scholarships are available for qualified teens and kids, Native Americans, and Inland Empire teachers.
Summer Program Reimagined will offer virtual programs in place of on-site instruction with personal access to working artists, world-renowned musicians, writers, filmmakers, dancers, visual artists, and Native American arts creators. Summer Program is even expanding into new areas, with Math Skills & Arts, ESL & Arts, and culinary arts. Workshops range from one day to two weeks and will take place via Zoom with global access, carefully balancing online screen time with guided projects as well as one-on-one instruction. All of the Summer Program’s disciplines – acting, musical theatre, theatre design, creative writing, dance, visual arts, and filmmaking – will be represented in the summer program. Upcoming workshops include Digital Photography, Ballet & Modern Dance, Electronic Music Production, Native American Arts, Songwriting (for adults and teens), Audition Bootcamp for Theatre Performers. Look for more workshops in Classical Orchestra Performance, Jazz Performance, Piano Performance (for adults and kids!), and Musical Theatre.
