Weekend Academies in the Arts

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. The Academies are a great way to get to know the offerings here at UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts, whether you have your eye on applying to colleges and universities next year or in a few years. Parents and teachers get some good information not only about our programs, but also about the opportunities available to young people who continue their arts education.
