California Arts Scholars selected

Submitted By Rachel Osajima

From a pool of over 1500 applicants from all 57 counties of the State of California, 500 students were chosen to attend the 2013 session of the California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA) July 13 - August 9. Those selected demonstrated outstanding artistic excellence in Animation, Creative Writing, Film, Dance, Music, Theatre and the Visual Arts.

CSSSA is a four-week, intensive pre-college program for talented and motivated high school students in the arts, held on the campus of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Valencia. CSSSA alumni include such Hollywood names as Zac Efron and James Franco, Pixar animators Mark Walsh and Sanjay Patel, Broadway star Teal Wicks, TV stars Katherine McPhee and Kirsten Vangsness, author Margaret Dilloway and many other successful artists and creative leaders.
