Discover the Formula for a Great Family Vacation

For Families of All Ages Family Camp is one of our most popular programs. Because enrollment is limited, it fills up very quickly. Families, from single parents with children and grandparents with grandchildren, to traditional families and extended families, have all found Family Camp to be the ideal family vacation. Relaxing, fun & educational, too!

Family Camp 2013

ARTS +OUTDOORS + FUN + AFFORDABILITY = FAMILY CAMP

Families who are looking for a vacation that combines the arts, the outdoors and a liberal dose of fun need look no further. Idyllwild Arts Family Camp is the answer. For seven days and six nights put yourself in our hands. No cooking, no cleaning, no driving, no hassles. We will teach you, entertain you and laugh with you. Set your own pace. You can fill your days with classes and activities, hiking, swimming and dancing. Or, you can sit around the pool (or under a giant cedar) and catch up on your reading. We think you’ll wind up doing all of the above during your week at Family Camp.

Setting

Mosaics

Idyllwild Arts is located on the western slopes of the San Jacinto Mtns. in Southern California. Nestled at the 5000’ level, the 205-acre campus is a naturally beautiful setting with clean air, alpine forests, mountain meadows, and singing Strawberry Creek. Idyllwild is a 21/2 hour drive from Los Angeles or San Diego. Although there is no public transportation to Idyllwild, it is easily accessible by means of California’s excellent freeway and state highway systems. Transportation service to and from Idyllwild can be provided by Idyllwild Arts from the Palm Springs or Ontario airports. Our campus has many fine facilities for the pleasure of our guests. Indoor and outdoor theaters, wellequipped art studios, dance studios and two dozen practice rooms, all equipped with fine pianos, are available for instruction and individual work. A variety of comfortable, newly-refurbished lodgings and a homey dining hall help to put guests at ease from the moment they arrive on the campus.

Who can attend ?

The whole family is welcome at Family Camp. Parents, children, grandparents, uncles, cousins and aunts will all enjoy a great week. Single parent families and couples without children are also welcome. Children under three are welcome, of course, but they remain your responsibility.

Outdoors and Wilderness Fabric Painting

Lodging

Accommodations are in Pierson and MacNeal Hall, the school’s newest and most comfortable lodging facilities. Rooms are bright and airy, and have private bathrooms with showers. Choose the economical One-Room option and save money, or spread out into the Two-Room option for more space and privacy. Daily maid service means you don’t have to worry about making beds or other mundane household chores.

Meals

Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style and include unlimited helpings of wholesome goodies: fruit, yogurt, cereal, pancakes, eggs, waffles, and juices for breakfast; soups, salad bar, sandwiches and hot entrees for lunch.

Each day will offer a choice of hikes, ranging from easy walks to all-day excursions, in the San Jacinto Wilderness. Along the way, you’ll learn about the indigenous flora and fauna of the area. Bring your day pack or fanny pack and we’ll load you up with enough nutritious yummies to keep your fires stoked throughout the hike.

Bookstore & Exhibit Center

Native American crafts and jewelry, posters, books, camp clothing and sundries are for sale in the Todd Center/Bookstore and the Parks Exhibition Center. Remember your week at Family Camp by keeping warm in your Idyllwild Arts sweats during the chilly winter months.

In the late afternoons, beer, wine, soft drinks and munchies are provided to help you recover from the rigors of your daytime activities. Dinners are special meals at Family Camp. From informal barbecues to buffets, each evening will be an adventure in dining.

Children’s Activities Children’s arts activities are designed to be ageappropriate, educational and of course, fun. Families will receive detailed information upon enrollment. Three & Four Year Olds: Morning Program Diaper-free three and four year olds meet each morning from 9 a.m. to Noon. Activities include crafts, games and short walks around the campus. Water-safe children may also participate in afternoon swimming activities, supervised by our counselors and lifeguards. Five to Eight Year Olds: Multi-Arts From 9 a.m. to Noon each day, five to eight year olds will have three short (45 minute) classes in visual art, dance/movement and creative drama, all taught by experienced professional educators. Afternoons consist of recreational activities and games led by our children’s counselors. Nine to Fourteen Year Olds: Focused Arts Children 9–14 have the option to be involved in a full or half day of focused arts activities. During the 9 a.m.–Noon slot, children 9–14 choose one of three options as their visual arts focus for the week. In past summers these options have included painting & drawing, photography, bear-making, ceramic sculpture and handmade books. During the afternoons, children can choose a performing arts option such as Musical Theatre or West African Music and Dance, or can participate in the counselor-led recreation program. All Focused Arts activities are taught by experienced artist-teachers. (Children 15 years and older may participate in Family Camp activities as teenagers or as adults.)

Adult Activities

In addition to our excellent year-round staff, 50 summer staffers, college students and recent graduates, will serve you during your stay. You can be sure that these young people are among the most outstanding and creative in our country today. They are selected on the basis of their experience working with children and in the arts, both as teachers and performers.

Adults can plan to be as busy as they wish to be. An extensive offering of classes is available to interested participants, along with the possibility of enrolling in selected Summer Program Adult and Native American Arts courses at no or minimal extra cost. Although course offerings and availabilities vary from year to year, Family Camp participants will have a broad selection of arts activities from which to choose. In 2013, the following arts classes were available to Family Camp adults: Appreciating Shakespeare, Batik & Tie Dye, Cast, Carve & Create, Ceramics, Digital Photography, Fabric Painting & Fiber Art, Folk Instruments, Gourd Basketry, Jewelry Making, Mosaics, Navajo Weaving, Silk Painting, Singing, Solarplate Etching, Stone Carving, Upscale Designing, Watercolor, Writing the Memoir, and Yoga.

Singing Workshop

We also have two dozen practice rooms equipped with fine pianos for your playing pleasure. Although many Family Camp participants choose to fill their time with as many stimulating activities as there are hours in the day, Family Camp offers parents, grandparents and other adults time to relax while the children are busily engaged in exciting and meaningful arts classes. Feel free to relax in the shade of a mighty oak tree with your favorite book, or nap in the quiet solitude of your room. In the village of Idyllwild, a one and one-half mile stroll from the campus, charming shops and stores abound, offering a range of hand-crafted gifts and keepsakes.

CHILDREN’S & JR. ARTIST’S CENTERS Pro gr ams

‘There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.’ — Graham Greene

Ages 5 to 8

Students work hard yet never lose sight of the fun involved in their personal pursuit of artistic goals. Small classes and a low student to teacher ratio—approximately 9:1—ensure that students receive a great deal of individual attention and support. An important goal of the Children’s/Junior Artist’s Centers is for students to gain an enthusiasm and excitement for the arts as well as a basic foundation of technical knowledge.

The Multi-Arts Day Progam is a specially designed program for children ages 5–8.

Ages 9 to 12 One and Two-week programs give children ages 9–12 an opportunity to explore art, creative drama/theatre, dance, music, and creative writing.

Daily Schedule Residential Students: Children’s and Junior Artist’s Center classes run Monday–Friday from 9 a . m .–3:30 p . m . and Saturday mornings, 9 a.m.–11:30 p.m.

CHILDREN’S CENTER Multi-Arts Day Program (ages 5–8)...............11

Students meet at 8:30 a.m. at Bowman Arts Center for announcements, and walk with counselors to their 9 a.m. classes. Students have a one-hour lunch break plus morning and afternoon snacks. Healthy snacks are provided by the school.

The Children’s & Junior Artist’s Center The Children’s Center (ages 5–12 years) and Junior Artist’s Center (ages 11–13 years) are designed for students who are interested in a focused intensive experience in the arts in an atmosphere which is responsive to the emotional and educational needs of young children and adolescents. The differences between the workshops offered by the Children’s Center and the Junior Artist’s Center are the level of content and concepts taught, along with the general level of concentration and maturity found within those age groups. There is much overlapping to provide parents a broader selection of courses to choose from. Students are housed by age regardless of the center in which they are enrolled. Skilled and experienced artist-educators use age appropriate materials and methods to convey the excitement and discipline necessary for achievement in the arts. Students are given technical instruction mixed with strong encouragement to come up with creative solutions posed by artistic challenges. Instructors are chosen for their ability to work in a focused and supportive atmosphere with students of all backgrounds and abilities.

Supervision Students are supervised in the dormitories by counselors. Most counselors are college students or recent graduates with a major or strong interest in the arts. Counselors are rigorously screened and interviewed before being hired. The Summer Program receives approximately ten applications for every open position. Counselors are selected based on their experience and interest in working with young people, their character references and their interpersonal communication skills. The Dean of Students organizes a comprehensive 11-day training and orientation session for all counselors prior to the beginning of the Summer Program. Topics covered during orientation include first aid, responsible counseling, conflict mediation, and campus safety. Counselors are the primary link between students and the Summer Program. Students can feel free to approach their counselors with questions, concerns or problems. Every effort is made to provide as much individual student-counselor contact as possible.

The afternoon class session ends at 3:30 p.m. After classes students may return to the dormitory area for relaxation, participate in supervised activities or they may go to the swimming pool. Saturday and Sunday afternoons are filled with recreational activities created by the Student Services Staff. Students may sleep in and rest on Sunday mornings. Day Students: Parents are requested to drop off their children by 8:30 a.m. at Bowman Arts Center, Monday–Friday for Multi-Arts, and Monday–Saturday for Specialized Programs. All day students are assigned to a counselor.

Housing There are four Children’s/Junior Artist’s Center dormitories, each with four student rooms, one counselor room and shared bathrooms. Students are housed by sex and age. Students are housed four or five to a room. Two or three counselors live in each dorm. There are three girls’ dorms and one boys’ dorm. Supervised by their counselors, students are responsible for cleaning their own rooms and the common bathrooms. Cleaning supplies and vacuum cleaners are supplied by the school. Students are responsible for damages to facilities and property. Idyllwild Arts reserves the right to bill students for repair and/or replacement costs.

Day students follow the same daily schedule as residential students. Lunch in the Dining Hall and snacks are included in the day student tuition. Day students who wish to swim in the afternoons should bring a bathing suit and towel. Parents may pick up their children at 3:30 p.m. at the Children’s Center or between 3:30 – 5 p.m. at the pool. Idyllwild Arts cannot supervise day students after 5 p.m. Evening and Recreational Activities All residential students participate in an extensive program of recreational activities organized and run by the counselors. Game nights, short hikes, pool parties and dances are just some of the activities offered each evening from 7–9 p.m. On weekends, longer more extensive activities including art projects, informal drama productions, and field games are scheduled for Children Center students. Student Pick-Up and Check-Out Students are free to be picked up by their parents at the conclusion of their final performance or culmination, and after they have been checked out of their dormitory rooms by their counselors. In general, room cleanup occurs on the final Friday night before the end of the session.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Policy On Phoning/Contacting Home Children’s Center & Junior Artist students are encouraged to contact their families via letter while they are in residence at the Summer Program. Students may call home Saturdays and Sundays. Calls must be completed by 9 p.m. Please note: Students are not permitted to call home at any time during the first week, from check-in on Sunday through Friday evening. This permits students time to acclimate themselves to being away from home and greatly improves the “Sleep Away Camp Experience”. Parents are requested to refrain from calling their children during this period. Parents may contact the Children’s/Junior Artist’s Center Dean and counselors during this time to find out how their children are doing. Meals Meals are included in the fees for resident students. Idyllwild Arts contracts with SACCO food service. Meals are served cafeteria-style in the dining hall. Food is wholesome and prepared for the general taste. There are vegetarian options at every meal including a hot entree at every lunch and dinner. In addition, an extensive salad bar featuring fresh fruits and vegetables is available at all lunches and dinners. At lunch, Children’s/Junior Artist’s Center students eat a simplified (fewer choices) version of the regular lunch. Lunch is included in the day student fee. Day students may purchase breakfast or dinner at the door, if desired. The school also offers a snack bar which operates on a cash basis. Sandwiches, snacks and soft beverages are available from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily. General information Please see page 45 for additional information including campus location, transportation, and suggestions for items to bring on page 46. See page 47 for information on discounts, credits and scholarships. Please note: See page 46 for important information regarding the school’s Standards of Behavior. 9 5 1 - 6 5 9 - 2171x 2365

Each week the program will revolve around a theme of interest to children.

Wendy Bystrycki

Students work in large and small groups throughout the day in a variety of age groupings so children have the opportunity to learn how to work cooperatively and collaborate in the arts. While the program is designed for children ages 5–8, it is recommended that any 5 year old be mature enough to handle a full day of program. Parents are welcome to stay the first morning only of each session until the children have gone to their first class. Each one-week session ends with an Open House on Friday at 2:45 p.m. The Open House is held each week at the Oaks which is located directly above the Children’s Center office.

Piano Workshop Open to children ages 9–12 June 29–July 12

Course # CCPW Ø1-Ø2

Two-week session Student Performance Saturday, July 12, 10 a.m. This workshop is ideal for the late beginner through advanced piano student, and is open without audition to any child who has completed three years of piano study. Daily group activities include improvisation, theory and rhythm games, playing eight-hand music, discussing technique and interpretation, learning new practice skills, and listening to great recordings. Students practice two to three hours each day, during which they receive at least a half hour of individual attention, in the form of practice supervision and lessons. This intensified learning environment accelerates the students’ progress and helps them to focus for longer periods of time. Students are challenged to do their finest work in a relaxed, loving, and non-threatening atmosphere. Specific goals are to polish one learned piece, finish a work in progress, and prepare a new piece for performance in concert. Paul Nickels has taught Suzuki piano for 30 years, Dr. Laura Spitzer, is a concert pianist and Associate Professor at New Mexico State University, and. Janisa Tharp is a private teacher in Colorado.

Ever thought about how much fun it would be to see yourself on the big screen? This two-week intensive will focus on the technique and performance skills necessary for acting in front of the lens! Working on camera gives students the unique opportunity to view and critique their own work in order to help them accelerate in their craft. Students will have the opportunity to learn about film/television acting technique through working with the latest sides from film, episodic, and commercials. By focusing on the fundamentals of acting through the lens of the camera, young actors are encouraged to follow their impulses searching to find truth in their work. The first week will include exercises in relaxation, improvisation, and imagination as students learn to integrate their voice, body, imagery, and sensorywork. The second week will focus on bringing those tools to life on screen. A culmination of the sessions will be a screening of the students’ film work which will include their very own reel! Students should bring 2-3 solid-colored shirts, clothes to move in, and a heart ready to tell stories! Fees: See Specialized Programs, page 12. Enrollment limited to 14 students.

Course # JATH Ø3-Ø4

Two-week session Student Performance Saturday, July 26, 11:30 a.m. This unique and exhilarating program is designed for talented actors, singers and dancers. Students get the chance to work on an original or adapted musical from its early stages of development to its first performance at the end of this two-week session. Rehearsals with the director, musical director, and choreographer take place from 9–5, Monday thru Friday, with additional rehearsals that may be held in the evenings or on the weekend. In addition to performing, students may be asked to assist in various technical aspects of the production-costuming, props, set construction, etc.

Students will audition on the first day of class. Auditions will consist of a prepared, memorized song of the student’s selection, a dance audition, and a read-through of the play.

Animation means “bringing to life,” and it’s exactly what animators do–whether it’s exploring deep space, inside the video game universe or revealing intimate aspects of nature. Ever wonder how the Flying Carpet in Aladdin could show so much emotion? We’ll show you! Disney artists called Animation the “Illusion of Life;” and it’s been crafted and refined by imaginative artists at Pixar, Dreamworks, Disney, Warner Brothers, and others. Now computers have triggered an explosion of animation for film, television, in games and on the web.

Course # JACR Ø5-Ø6

Two-week session Culmination: Student Art Exhibit Saturday, August 9, 10 a.m. In this two week course different ways of working with clay, glazes and firing techniques will be introduced and explored. Projects are built around learning various handbuilding techniques as well as working on the potter’s wheel. Methods of firing will include high temperature reduction, electric, and raku as well as soda firing depending on students’ interests. This instructive and fun two weeks provides an excellent opportunity for individual instruction and group interaction for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. Students may bring their own tools, but studio tools are available for use. Old clothing is recommended for class. Tuition, room and board: $2950 Lab fee: $40 (Includes clay and firing costs.)

This immersive program is for anyone who wants to start animating, as well as gain foundation skills for future work in animation, film & video, games, or the web. We examine the fundamentals of the art of animation and how to use Adobe Flash to create art and characters. No prior experience is needed–we only need our ideas and imaginations to create our own clips that can be published to and shared via YouTube, Vine and our own websites.

If you love color and design, jewelry making, fashion design, fabric, yarn, tactile art and up-cycling then this is the course for you! Come prepared to indulge yourself in creativity as you spend two weeks completely immersed in designing and creating several projects using a variety of mediums. Each student will design and create an original, moveable, collectible mohair animal. You will learn how to sew on a sewing machine as you construct your designs. We will go on a field trip to learn how to choose fabrics that best suit our designs and to gather more supplies to use in our long list of projects. Projects include mosaic, jewelry making, up-cycling denim and t-shirts, knitting, tie dyeing, silk painting and so much more. Our culmination will include an exhibition of each student’s work as well as a fashion show featuring our young, up and coming designers! Each student needs to bring two pairs of old jeans (any size) and 5–10 t-shirts to be used in our upcycling projects Tuition, room and board: $2950 Lab fee: $75 Enrollment limited to 10 students. CAT ORLANDO, see bio on page 40.

You will develop a story from its beginnings as an idea and concept art to a finished portfolio project; you’ll gain the skills for using Flash tools to design and animate scene elements, characters and effects. Along the way, you’ll learn the same essential techniques and tricks master studio animators have developed and we’ll take time to watch how they have applied them. Throughout you’ll be refining your own methods and style while exploring storytelling, movement, sketches and gesture drawing, and create a portfolio that incorporates your artwork, action studies, and reference materials along with your digital creations.

Explore the wonders of the arts in this great combination course! Students will discover the styles and techniques of artistic masters from throughout history—and then use their creativity to develop their own take on the master’s style using various mediums, such as oil pastels, silk painting, block printing, graphite pencil, and paints. This painting and drawing experience encourages the exploration of art and beginning approaches to art fundamentals. This class is built on personalized instruction, working to develop each student’s skills and interests. Using the work of the masters as an inspiration, we will emphasize creating and developing each student’s personal imagery and skills. The class will focus on design elements including color mixing, composition, gesture, contour drawing, still-life composition, visual perspective and historical and personal style. Interest and commitment to art, not just talent, is recommended. We will be working hard to grow as artists while also learning how to enjoy the creative process.

Photography is changing rapidly today, but the fundamental principles are not. This unique workshop will explore the concepts and techniques of photography, and, their use in both traditional and digital workflows. We will explore the history of photography, the dark room and the new digital tools, such as Photoshop and Lightroom, and their use in the creative process. In addition to the many techniques covered, students will be given the opportunity to explore under water photography and the use of reflectors in portraiture. Students will be encouraged to use the skills learned in this workshop to expand their imagination and photographic creativity.

Materials: Students should bring any paint brushes they have; a 9”x12” pad of Bristol paper; a set of varying hardness graphite pencils, a pencil sharpener.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” -Ansel Adams Materials: Students should bring a digital camera, batteries, charger and instruction manual (if available); USB thumbdrive; 25 sheets of ink jet photo paper (luster or glossy surface); and water bottle.

Culmination: Student Reading Saturday, August 9, 10 a.m. Just as every young writer’s voice is completely unique, many of the most important writers of our time don’t really fall exclusively under 
the categories of “poetry,” “fiction,” or “journalism.” In the age of Desk Top Publishing and the “On-Line” journal, new forms continue to appear. This exciting workshop attempts to cultivate new approaches to writing while simultaneously encouraging the new voices behind them. Are you a young writer who’s not sure what to write? Ever heard of “prose poetry”, “flash fiction”, or “lyric essay”? All forms, new and old, will be explored for the perfect match with a new voice. Workshop participants will meet each day with popular Los Angeles poet and educator Brendan Constantine. In an atmosphere of wonder and discovery, students will engage in fun writing projects, lively debate and discussion, word games and a few surprises. The class will also try “stress free,” “no pressure” projects to help with performance of their work utilizing easy techniques for public speaking. Materials: Students should bring a fresh notebook and plenty of pencils and pens. Tuition, room and board: $2950 Lab fee: $40 Enrollment limited to 10 students.

The Youth Arts Center The goal of the Youth Arts Center is to provide students 13–18 years of age with an intensive hands-on experience in the arts in a competition-free environment that emphasizes individual growth. Students enroll in one course per session which becomes the primary focus of their participation in the Summer Program. Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves completely in the course of their choosing. Although exceptional talent is always welcomed and acknowledged, the key to success in the program is open-minded and energetic participation. Instructors expect to work with students of all levels of ability and experience in a nurturing atmosphere that stresses strong educational and personal values along with outstanding achievement. Students should be prepared to work hard and learn a great deal. Although many optional recreational activities are scheduled for Youth students, the requirements of a student’s chosen course, be it a rehearsal, a class or a lecture, always take first priority. Conversely, if a student feels the need for additional help or instruction, he/she can feel comfortable about asking an instructor for more time and attention.

Culmination: Student Art Exhibit Saturday, August 9, 10 a.m.

This class is designed to provide instruction in the fundamental approach, techniques, and concepts of drawing and painting. Drawing will be taught almost exclusively using the human figure as a means of investigating line, contour, negative space, volume, light, composition, etc., using a wide array of media. Concurrently, studies will focus in painting on the mechanics of working in oil paint with use of the human figure, landscape, still life, and photographic imagery as subject matter. Each student will complete at least three to six paintings. This class will investigate various ideas and considerations regarding art in both historical and contemporary terms. Additionally, the studio will be open during evening hours for individuals who want to work on projects outside of class. The session will culminate in an exhibition in which each student will have his or her work on display.

This class is structured much like the first (see above) but continuing students will have the option to broaden their inquiry with individual projects. All drawing will again be done in observation of a live model to investigate aspects of light, volume, composition, and line quality. Painting in this class will also be taught primarily with the use of oil paint. Consider Sessions I and II to be interchangeable but for a different set of instructors such that continuing students may benefit from an additional point of view. The session will culminate in an exhibition in which each student will have his or her work on display.

Open to all visual arts media.

Materials: Students should bring three Bristol vellum pads (24” x 18”); one newsprint pad (24” x 18”); and any paint brushes to which they are already partial.

The class also provides an introduction to visual concepts in photography, such as the frame, composition, light & time; these elements are considered in depth in Week II. Week II: Learning to See This week stretches the student’s ability to “see” photographically. Students explore ways of interpreting the world through photographs so their images reflect what they feel and see. The aesthetics of photography are explored through slides, books, discussions and extensive individual and group critiques and workshop assignments. Techniques of negative control through exposure and development changes are introduced, as well as more advanced printing techniques. The potential of toning and hand coloring to alter the black and white print is demonstrated. This week is designed not only to enhance technical knowledge, but also to clarify goals as a photographer, enabling the student to develop a new sense of direction and purpose.

Course # YYWF Ø1-Ø2 # YYWF Ø3-Ø4 # YYWF Ø5-Ø6

Culmination: Student Reading Saturday, July 12, 10 a.m. Saturday, July 26, 10 a.m. Saturday, August 9, 10 a.m. This summer’s intensive fiction workshop will focus on expanding students’ awareness of their craft as storytellers. “To make it memorable” is both the goal of each narrator in a story and the yearning of the writer who chooses the words. This workshop is for young writers who savor the creative use of language and have an insatiable desire to learn more about how to make their stories convincing. Each student is expected to write or substantially revise stories or chapters of longer projects throughout the course of the workshop. Please Note: In signing up for this workshop, each student acknowledges that she or he is capable of producing, on her or his own initiative, at least 500 words a day of writing. Each two-week workshop will meet a minimum of five hours per day, Monday through Friday, with a shorter meeting on Saturday morning. Brief individual conferences with the instructor can be scheduled following the afternoon workshop. The annual culminating event of each workshop is the Saturday morning reading at the end of the second week, at which students will read a portion of their projects.

Morning and afternoon classes will include sustained discussion of the writing the students have produced during their writing periods. The tone of this discussion will always grow out of a respect for the effort required to produce well-written imaginative stories. Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring with them ten to twelve pages of creative writing they have done at some point in their lives. The emphasis in this workshop, however, is on producing as many drafts of new work as possible. This workshop will also include the opportunity to expand the range of one’s daily reading, which is an essential part of the development of any writer’s capacity to grow as an artist. The instructor will recommend books far beyond the usual citations of writers such as Melville, Borges, Proulx, Stone, Flaubert, Wolf, Joyce, Zola and Hurston. The types of fiction explored in this intensive workshop will range from the popular genres to the kinds of stories rooted in classical as well as experimental approaches to literature. No matter which direction students end up taking as writers, this workshop will provide groundwork for the exploration of the reality of the imagination. Throughout the meetings, the instructor will interweave his knowledge of the methods by which a young writer turns the aspiration to become a writer into an actual career.

Young poets already know that writing is a process of inspiration, passion, discovery, and understanding. This workshop for beginning and advanced young writers, will challenge the usual ideas about poetry as field of expression and of study. You will discover new ways of reading and writing, deepen your familiarity with some great poets, and write many new poems, share them, and receive feedback from other students and the instructor. The only prerequisite is a love of language. The class will meet five hours a day, six days a week. At the end of the two weeks, students will produce an anthology, and present a reading for the school community. Everyone should bring notebooks, writing instruments and a few books of poetry they have enjoyed. Participants will have access to the Idyllwild Arts computer lab, to prepare drafts of poems for class critique. Tuition, room and board: $2950 Enrollment limited to 10 students.
