Community Arts Partnership (CAP)
The award-winning CalArts Community Arts Partnership (CAP), a co-curricular program of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), offers free, after-school and school-based arts programs for youth ages 6-18 in every discipline taught at CalArts. Programs are offered at public schools, community centers and social service agencies, covering a thousand square mile radius across Los Angeles County. With classes led by a teaching corps of accomplished CalArts faculty, alumni and student instructors, CAP participants learn to create original works of art and to experiment with prevailing conventions of artistic expression. CAP’s success has served as a model for other arts education organizations locally and nationally. And the program has received numerous honors, including The President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities’ Coming Up Taller Award, which recognizes effective programs that foster the creative and intellectual development of America’s children.
CAP is proud this week to showcase the following work from youth participants in the 2012-2013 CAP Digital Video & Animation Program at the Ramón C. Cortines School for Visual and Performing Arts:
