About The The California Arts Project

The California Arts Project (TCAP) is a collaborative, statewide network of classroom teachers and university scholars with the mission of improving teaching and learning in dance, music, theatre, visual arts, and in arts, media, and entertainment. As the state subject matter project for the visual and performing arts and career arts, media, and entertainment, TCAP's network of teacher leaders advocate for and strive to ensure access for all California students to a sequential, comprehensive, and excellent standards-based arts and career education. An education that includes content, literacy and process-rich learning in the arts will prepare California students to lead creative and collaborative communities and workplaces across California.
