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 & Entertainment course! You will learn about performing and visual arts, and experience 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 LA has more museums and theaters than any other city in the country? During the three day weekend, students will explore the famous Hollywood Blvd and various artistic hubs throughout the city.
