CalArts Community Arts Program

In 1990, California Institute for the Arts (CalArts) established the award-winning CalArts Community Arts Partnership (CAP) program, the first program of its kind in the United States. Through CAP, CalArts faculty, alumni, and students teach animation, creative writing, dance, film, music, photography, and visual art to 2,500 Los Angeles County youth every year through tuition-free in-school, after-school, and summer programs at community organizations and public schools. CAP adapts the Institute’s college-level pedagogical approach for young people, which stems from an emphasis on experimentation, risk taking, interdisciplinarity, and play. With classes led by a teaching corps of accomplished CalArts 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. The program has received numerous honors, including the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, which recognizes exemplary programs that foster the creative and intellectual development of America’s children. Through CAP, Los Angeles County youth gain access to high quality, sequential arts instruction and mentorship, regardless of their neighborhood or socioeconomic circumstances.
