October Meeting

nelsonhallIdyllwild Arts Students

The Idyllwild Arts Academy, located in the mountain village of Idyllwild, provides a program of visual, musical, and performing arts to high school students for the academic year as well as summer courses for adults and children of all ages. The Idyllwild Arts Foundation helps support this program.

“The IAA offers opportunities to children exploring art, curious pre-teens who are makers of art and music, teenagers bursting forth as emerging artists, professional artists who come to share and hone their talent and develop new skills, as well as the novice who learns more in one week, one class or one year than he or she ever thought possible.” says Idyllwild Arts Foundation President Pamela Jordan* who will tell us how the academy encourages and supports creativity.
