Start of the 2019-2020 School Year

Last Saturday was move-in day at Idyllwild Arts Academy. Our record-breaking 322 students from over 30 different countries also had Sunday and Monday to make new friends and reunite with old friends before classes began on Tuesday.

Many of the weekend events began with the Idyllwild Arts Land Acknowledgement. Our respectful acknowledgement of the Qawishpa Cahuillangnah (also known as Cahuilla Band of Indians) and all nine sovereign Bands of Cahuilla people who have stewarded the campus land throughout the generations was celebrated at a Sunday evening gathering in Holmes Amphitheatre. The Cahuilla Bird Singers performed and a number of our students and teachers danced with them.

The Holmes Amphitheatre gathering also featured dinner on the lawn, introductions by faculty and staff, and a full hour of superb student performances.

The town of Idyllwild’s statesman-like Mayor Max–the handsome dog in the snappy necktie–dropped in at an outdoor reception for parents on Saturday.
