All pre-assigned residents of ITALIC+Arts must demonstrate interest in and active engagement in the arts. But, you don’t need to be a prodigy or even majoring in the arts! We are as interested in your enthusiasm for the community as we are in your arts practice!

More About ITALIC+Arts

ITALIC+Arts shares Burbank House with the 46 students who are part of the first-year interdisciplinary academic arts program called ITALIC. Learn more about ITALIC here, here, or here. To build connections between these groups of residents, sophomores, juniors and seniors may opt to attend field trips and workshops with the ITALIC class, as ticketing and transportation allow. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may also serve as mentors to the first-year ITALIC students, continuing a long-standing tradition in ITALIC. 

ITALIC+Arts residents have access to the suite of specially-designed arts practice rooms (a music room, a dance/improv space, an art studio), as well as a basement gallery, a flexible performance space with a baby grand piano, and two seminar rooms.

Theme Requirements

All residents of ITALIC+Arts will be expected to attend at least two of the community’s programmed events per quarter. Taking or teaching an ITALIC 99 course also counts towards your engagement. ITALIC 99 courses are 1-unit courses focusing on the arts and taught by ITALIC alumni and residents of ITALIC+Arts.

ITALIC+Arts Student Leadership Committee coordinates programming, such as workshops, exhibitions, screenings, rehearsals, and performances that address residents’ interests in music, visual arts, theater and dance, writing and spoken word poetry. The Leadership Committee also coordinates the ordering and management of supplies in the basement art studio.
