The summer 2018 programs at Xian Yun Academy of the Arts California offer a variety of performing and visual arts, language, and math programs. From novice learners to aspiring young artists and performers, students ages 5-17 from all around the world attend Xian Yun Academy’s summer programs for an enriching and rewarding experience.
Through guidance and support from professional artist and educators, students will be challenged to learn new skills while developing aesthetic sophistication in a positive and supportive environment.

Xian Yun Academy’s Summer Programs run from June 18th to August 17th. Students may enroll in one or multiple sessions. Each session will conclude with a schoolwide performance and student artwork display on Friday to showcase the students’ achievements.
