STUDENT LIFE

“Dell’Arte is the second great love of my life. I met my first in Blue Lake. It is a rare jewel”
– PTP graduate

Every year, Dell’Arte welcomes students from all over the world to train in our home of Blue Lake, CA. Our unique rural setting, in the heart of California’s rugged and beautiful North Coast, offers students a place to study and commune with nature, self, and ensemble. Dell’Arte’s deep commitment to the larger community of Humboldt County and the community of our student body infuses the life of the student. Our alumni the world over will tell you how impactful and transformative the Dell’Arte experience is for an artist.
