It has been a difficult year for all of us in many ways. The arts have been hit particularly hard because so much of the work we do requires physical closeness and interaction. While our traditional summer program on the UCI campus has been suspended to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, instructors, and staff, we still need to support our community of artists.
For that reason, we are excited to offer the Summer Academies LITE program. It provides advanced young artists the tools they will need as they prepare applications and audition material for college and career pursuits. It also provides much needed employment for our team of instructors ⎼ practicing artists themselves ⎼ who have seen their commissions, gigs, and contracts cancelled.
If you are able, please consider making a gift of any amount to support the Summer Academies LITE program. Your contribution will make a significant impact by supporting the artists who make it possible.
