Idyllwild Arts Academy

About Idyllwild Arts Academy

Idyllwild Arts was founded as a respite for creators to come together from around the world. The vision of our founders, in 1946, was that this creative collective would promote intercultural understanding and peace while re-envisioning the artist’s responsibility to society.

We at Idyllwild Arts have always believed that art is the greatest teacher of humanity. We continue to believe that the practice of creativity hones a person’s desire and ability to effect global change.

We therefore strive to embolden and cultivate artists as citizens who attain the height of individuality in partnership, as interdisciplinary thinkers, and as apprentices to nature who humbly take inspiration from the Cahuilla people on whose land the Idyllwild Arts community dwells.

“I really liked having the opportunity to influence teens interested in the arts, and I had been a camper at Idyllwild in the past so working with students who have the same passions/goals as me was really rewarding.”
