Summer at CalArts

Advance your work in one of our five-week summer residencies at CalArts, where you’ll live and work among a community of driven artists. The Summer Animation and Filmmaking Residencies are rich opportunities to dig deeper with dedicated faculty and guest artists while earning course credit toward an undergraduate degree. The Summer Art Residency is a sanctuary of creative freedom supported by eye-opening seminars, critical workshops and curated events at world-renowned facilities. 

The five-week Critical Studies courses are open to students from outside the Institute to earn college credit over the summer. 

Discover programs are geared towards emerging artists aged 14 to 17. These 1- or 2-week intensives offer exciting ways to take a deep-dive into a chosen discipline, with class instruction, special guests, and field trips.
