CCA has made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s Young Artist Studio Program due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We deeply regret disappointing the young artists who hoped to visit our campus this summer and deepen their skills. We were looking forward to meeting and working with them, but the health and safety of our students, instructors, and staff has to be our top priority and it has become clear to us that we will not be able to achieve the levels of social distancing that will still be required this summer. 

Admitted students and families have been contacted via email regarding full refunds. 

Please reach out to Audrey Jones, YASP Program Manager, at with any questions or concerns.
