Los Angeles is called the creative capital of the world because 1 in 6 residents work in the fields of arts and entertainment. It's the perfect city to take our Arts and Entertainment course - you will be learning about performing and visual arts, and experiencing it first-hand at the same time! Los Angeles is famous worldwide as the center of America's film and television industry, but did you also know that L.A. has more museums and theaters than any other city in the country? During the three day weekend, students will explore L.A.'s historic Downtown, the famous Hollywood Blvd, and various artistic hubs throughout the city. Performing Arts students will also attend a live theater show, and Visual Arts students will spend time at some of the city's world-famous art museums.
Choose ONE of these tracks:
Performing Arts: Acting, Dance, Music
Visual Arts: Photography, Mixed Media Art
or sign up for double weekends and experience both!
