Course Catalog

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 online instruction, pre-recorded content and scheduled office hours. Capacity is limited to ensure quality instruction and maximize time with the teaching artist and classmates. Students 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. 

Contact Kristin Livingston at kristin@capkids.org or Ariani Pena at ariani@capkids.org for more information.

Enrollment is currently closed. Check back soon for next quarter’s course catalog.
