Following our successful online Summer Programs, we are thrilled to launch new online Auxiliary Programs for fall and spring. Auxiliary Programs workshops will inspire your artistic and creative spirit, and they are the perfect enhancement to regular school curriculum. Citizen-artists are needed more than ever to help bring communities, develop creative solutions and challenge the status quo.
Spring Auxiliary teen programs will run February 6 to March 20, 2021. Children’s Dance and Children’s Theatre will begin in January 2021. Click here to learn more.

“Thank You! Drawstring Bead & Quill Medicine Pouch was a new experience, my first tiem taking an online class. I also have never worked with porcupine quills; I was happy for this new understanding. Navajo Loom Beading/Cuff with Jennifer Ben was just as interesting, intricate and fascinating.
I have come away with a very beautiful Beaded Cuff and a very memorable experience. The real perk — taking the classes with my two granddaughters, 14- and 16-years-old.”

"From technical skills with my instrument in masterclasses to the leadership skills I learned in the 21st Century class, I will use everything I learned this summer to make a positive impact on the world! Thank you so much for the online Orchestra & Concert Band Program. I hope to come back again!"

“Megan is really enjoying the Songwriting Workshop. She loved it so much that she enrolled in the Vocal & Choral Performance Workshop next week!"
"My daughter is loving Songwriting so much that she is enrolling in the second week for the Advanced Songwriting Workshop.She’s loving it!"
"Thank you to the entire faculty and staff of Jazz in the Pines Student Workshop for keeping the spirit of Idyllwild alive. Our family isn't comparing this online year to what "should" have been; we're comparing it to what the summer would have been like without any Idyllwild at all.This has been amazing. 2020 has demanded unprecedented improvisation from all of us. Who is better suited to this moment than a bunch of jazz musicians?"

"I have learned how to strengthen my techniques, and how to add different chords to a song to spice it up. The supportive atmosphere makes me feel so safe and free to express myself without being judged.It doesn't matter what level of songwriter you are."
“My son absolutely loved your online Children’s Theatre Workshop. He said he could do this camp forever.”
“Idyllwild Arts offers challenging and unique opportunities, providing diverse, structured and innovative conservatory Summer & Auxiliary Programs online. Our students are excited and able to articulate a deeper artistry in their individual work, as well as a confidence in their performance. Thank you for connecting your artistic home with ours!”
