LA Unified students find their inner artist with help from CalArts
Aaron Stella | July 10, 2014
A group of 250 high school students from LA Unified and the surrounding area are putting finishing touches on their art projects this week under the guidance of college faculty and graduate students from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), a university focused on visual and performing arts.
Administered through Community Arts Partnership (CAP), an off-shoot of CalArts, the summer program is a three week intensive study for high school students with an arts passion. They work under the guidance of 28 CalArts students, and seven CalArts faculty members on the Ramone C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts campus in downtown LA.
Courses are offered, tuition-free, in seven disciplines – theatre, dance, music, visual arts, photography, creative writing and animation.
