Idyllwild, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Idyllwild Arts has announced that registration for its 64th Annual Summer Program art workshops, which began on February 1st , is fast approaching the March 15th deadline for early registration which offers a 10% reduction in workshop fees.
Since the schedule of workshops for the legendary Summer Program at Idyllwild Arts was announced on February 1st, the continued popularity of the program has been underscored by the robust online registration activity.
The Idyllwild Arts Summer Program has been a long tradition for many students/artists who return to Idyllwild each year: 1) to experience this enriching arts environment; 2) to learn new techniques in their field of interest; or 3) to acquire working knowledge in a new medium. As class sizes are limited, many workshops reach their capacity rapidly; hence, early registration is suggested. To register for the Summer Program Art Workshops, visit: idyllwildarts.org/summer
The Idyllwild Arts Summer Program offers more than 100 art workshops and runs from June 16 - August 11, 2013. The rich and varied schedule features 2-day to 3-week-long hands-on arts workshops for passionate practicing professional/non-professional artists, children, youth, and families. The Summer Program is unique in that it provides intensely-focused arts instruction in small classes (average class size is 10 students), by professional artists-instructors, in an idyllic and tranquil setting, all conducive to productive and meaningful exploration of students’ chosen field of study.
The following list is only a few of the disciplines that offer enriching workshops:
Theatre Mixed Media

Each summer one of the highlights of the Summer Program is the renowned Native American Arts Festival, which celebrates its 15th anniversary June 30- July 6, 2013, and showcases the work of notable Native American artists.
The Summer Program draws nearly 2,000 students of all ages and features the enormously popular Children’s, Youth, and Adult Programs as well as Family Camp, a program that enables the whole family to participate in a week-long schedule of art classes and family-friendly activities.
Instructors are professional artists and are adept at working with students of all levels, backgrounds and abilities. The experience is enriched by a schedule of fun events and activities including exhibits, lectures, concerts, readings and more.
During its long history, the Summer Program has attracted numerous notable artist-instructors from a wide range of media including Ansel Adams, Elizabeth Murray, Norman Corwin, and Lucille Clifton, Meredith Wilson and Pete Seeger. The Native American Arts program historically has featured such artists as Maria Martinez, Lucy Lewis, Fred Kabotie, Michael Kabotie, Juan Quezada, and Bertha Stevens and many more.
