Creative Connections provides curriculum-based arts projects to K12 students. The program helps to fill the arts gap for Orange County area schools and school districts, which may offer little or no arts education programs.

The Summer Academies in the Arts are part of a movement by UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts to provide meaningful opportunities for the community to engage in Arts, Dance, Drama, Music, and Technology on campus and to contribute to youth development.

Weekend Academies in the Arts are day-long events for middle and high school students and their parents to participate in workshops, panel discussions, and tours, and to attend a related arts event.
