Los Angeles County Arts Commission - 2007

Funded in March, 2007: $60000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant will be applied towards continued implementation of the Professional Artist School-based Training Program. This county-wide training program is the only comprehensive professional development program in Los Angeles County that prepares artists not associated with a performance roster to provide services to schools, and gives administrators the tools to assess the quality of their teaching artists. It directly supports Goal 2 of Arts for All: Los Angeles County Regional Blueprint for Arts Education, the County's 10-year strategic plan providing a series of policy changes and educational initiatives to restore K-12 education in dance, music, theatre and the visual arts, based on the Visual and Performing Arts Standards (VAPA), in each of the County's 80 school districts.
