National City Mayor, Alejandra Sotelo-Solis, proclaimed April 16, 2019 as Arts, Culture, and Creativity Month. Sweetwater High School’s Folklorico group was invited to represent the arts and accept the proclamation.
The Sweetwater Summer Arts Academy is a FREE one week learning opportunity offered each summer to Sweetwater Union High School District students in Visual and Performing Arts classes.
The 2019 Academy takes place at Chula Vista High School from June 10th through June 14th, 2019 from 9am-4pm, Monday thru Friday. Lunch will be served. Each day will be divided into 5 sessions including work specific to each discipline as well as leadership skills.
Interested students may apply below. Teachers from each of our school sites will then recommend students from the seven VAPA disciplines (Visual Art, Orchestra, Choir, Concert Band, Dance, Baile Folklorico, and Mariachi) to attend the Academy.
