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 pleased to announce that the CAP Summer Arts Program (CAPSA) will be taking place from July 8 – 27, 2013 at Ramón C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts in Downtown Los Angeles.
CAPSA is an outstanding, tuition-free three-week intensive arts program for high school students entering grades 10, 11, 12, or graduating in June 2013. To be eligible for participation, students must be residents of Los Angeles County. The program, now in its 9th year, will offer workshops in 7 disciplines including Animation, Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Photography, Theater, and the Visual Arts. Each of these workshops will be led by outstanding artists on faculty at California Institute of the Arts, and CalArts student instructors, who will guide the participants through exciting and creative experimentation in the arts. Participants will explore their art forms, while building their skills and deepening their understanding. Participants will also visit leading arts institutions throughout Los Angeles, experience the work of visiting artists, learn about college applications and financial aid programs, and exhibit/perform their work in a culmination event!
