Registration for 2016 Summer Academies in the Arts is Open

UC IRVINE’S CLAIRE TREVOR SCHOOL OF THE ARTS LAUNCHES REGISTRATION FOR 2016 SUMMER ACADEMIES IN THE ARTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS

IRVINE, Calif., (February 18, 2016) – The Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) has launched registration for its 2016 Summer Academies in the Arts.  The Academies are part of a movement by the school to provide meaningful opportunities for the community to engage with the arts on campus at UCI and to contribute to youth development.  These college and career preparatory intensives for high school and middle school students enhance students’ 21st century skills, and support college and career goals, self-confidence and leadership.

Talented and motivated students get to experience life as an undergraduate arts major, in which they receive practical and technical instruction in small classes taught by graduate instructors, professionals in the field and, in some cases, CTSA faculty.  With rigorous college-level coursework, and the option of receiving university credit, social and professional networking, and even having the option to live in residence on campus, it's the perfect opportunity for learning and development in a fun, challenging environment.

Younger students can also explore the arts through CTSA’s partnerships:  Arts & Learning Conservatory’s Exploratory Theater, “Shining Stars” Summer Dance Program, and US Performing Arts Camps in Musical Theater.

Courses in Art, Dance, Drama, Music and Robotics run throughout the summer.  Visit http://outreach.arts.uci.edu/summer-academies for dates, times, scholarship information and to register.  For more information contact the Outreach Department at artsoutreach@uci.edu or (949)824-4647.

As UCI’s creative laboratory, the Claire Trevor School of the Arts explores and presents the arts as the essence of human experience and expression, through art forms ranging from the most traditional to the radically new. Our international faculty works across a wide variety of disciplines, partnering with others across the campus, our national-ranked programs in art, dance, drama, and music begin with training but end in original invention. Our students come to UCI to learn to be citizen-artists, to sharpen their skills and talents, and to become the molders and leaders of world culture.
