VAPAE Welcome - Fall 2017

Warm Welcomes to Fall Quarter

As Week 1 of the Fall Quarter comes to a close,
we want to take a moment to reflect in gratitude. 

We ended the Spring Quarter earlier this year with our first ever General Education course - Arts Education 20: Introduction to Community Engagement through Arts Education taught by our VAPAE Director Kevin Kane, celebrated our graduating VAPAE Minors & teaching artists, and collaborated with the Confucius Institute & GSEIS to teach the Mandarin/Spanish Summer Arts Camp at Mark Twain Middle School.

This summer, we also bid a fond farewell to two beloved VAPAE team members: our extraordinary Program Coordinator Lindsay Lindberg, and our inspiring Associate Director Laurel Butler. At the same time, we joyfully welcomed our new Program Coordinator Amorette Muzingo and Community Engagement Coordinator Raymundo Baltazar to the VAPAE team.

This Fall Quarter, we begin our Arts Education Teaching Sequence courses, are relaunching our staple Afterschool Programs including: including our very first afterschool arts program Studio Sessions @ St. Sophia's once again taught by original teaching artists Brittany Ko and Brianda Perez; new visual arts and hip-hop dance at Emerson Community Charter Middle School; a third year of MASA at the UCLA Community School, and beginning a new partnership with Coeur d'Alene Avenue Elementary School

We are so happy to welcome new & returning students, friends, and family of VAPAE. We look forward to staying connected and sharing VAPAE's happenings with you. Best wishes on a wonderful new academic year!
