SUMMER ACADEMY IN THE ARTS

Tell your friends and get ready for a university-level experience in the arts this summer!

Mark your calendars:  June 27 – July 8, 2011

Claire Trevor School of the Arts (UC Irvine) is proud to announce the premiere of the CTSA Summer Academy in the Arts, for students finishing grades 8 – 12.  Located on the UC Irvine campus and open to all Southern California residents, the Summer Academy in the Arts provides highest-quality arts instruction and experiences in a university setting.

For two weeks, students are invited to participate in hands-on, intensive workshops led by faculty and graduate students, which will immerse them in technique, philosophy, research, and performance opportunities.  Days run 9:30am – 3:30pm, with bag lunch breaks.  Tuition includes all materials; dance students will be required to supply specific footwear.  On the final afternoon of the Academy, families and friends are invited to a potluck on the grounds of the Arts Campus, to enjoy each other’s company and to attend live workshops performed by the students in our Claire Trevor Theater.

Come prepared to work hard, learn a lot, and to be amazed at your results! No audition necessary; evaluations conducted on the first day of the Academy.
