This year, CAP is offering free, online visual and performing arts courses for a variety of ages taught by qualified teaching artist fellows. Quarterly courses will include live Zoom classes, pre-recorded content in Google Classrooms, and opportunities for individual meetings with teaching artists during office hours. Capacity for each course is limited to ensure quality instruction and maximize time with teaching artists and classmates. Children will connect with others their age and benefit from the lasting effects of arts education just as they would in an in-person CAP class!
Enrollment for Quarter 4 is currently closed.
