“Hello arts educators!

We are getting excited for this year’s Summer Academies in the Arts!

Thanks to a gift from the Assistance League of Irvine, we have scholarships to give exclusively to students who live in Irvine or go to school in IUSD, and who demonstrate financial need. Would you please let your students know about the opportunity?

Applications for full scholarships are due April 29th for our Arts camps and May 20th for our Technology camps (see below).

Please let me know if you have any questions, would like more brochures or posters, or if your students have questions. I am happy to help!

Thank you all for the wonderful work that you do!”
