It was founded in 1946 by Max and Bee Krone as a retreat from the rigors of urban life to support the cultural de-velopment of Southern California, a place where people of different back-grounds and cultures could celebrate their arts together. </p><p>Idyllwild Arts Foundation now operates two programs: the Summer Program, which is in its 62nd year of providing more than 100 different classes in the arts for students of all ages and abilities, and the Academy, founded in 1986, which is a fully accredited, independent, college prepara-tory high school for students with potential for a career in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, writing, moving pictures, or interdisciplinary arts. </p><p>Idyllwild Arts
