Bay Area California Arts Project & Central Valley’s Arts Education Network

The BayCAP & Central Valley Arts Education Network convenes online once per quarter supporting K–12 through post-secondary dance, media arts, music, theatre, visual arts, and CTE AME educators to further equitable, standards-based arts education that promotes students’ artistic literacy. In these unprecedented times the Networks forge new opportunities for teachers and administrators in the arts to connect, collaborate, exchange ideas, share experiences, and stay informed of regional and statewide arts education issues and topics. Network session time will be 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
