Bluepalm is a team of professional artist/educators, working with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, school districts, and individual sites to deliver sequential, standards-based arts programs. With Dana funding, Bluepalm will provide a series of professional development workshops for artists and charter school classroom teachers.  Participants will attend nine weeks of workshops, each week with a different training focus.  Workshops include introductions to California content standards in theater and dance, collaboration between artists and classroom teachers and evaluation, assessment, funding and advocacy.
