Collaborative Arts Project

Collaborative Arts Project logo

Collaborative Arts Project (CAP) is a customizable residency shaped by teaching artists in partnership with classroom teachers, making use of creative writing to expand horizons beyond traditional middle-school Fine Arts instruction. During 10 classroom sessions augmented by interactions with world-class professional artists and visits to the theater, CAP students will be inspired, deepen their artistic expertise, and connect with world-class professional artists through a school program that highlights the strengths of Society for the Performing Arts’ access initiatives.

During the 2020-2021 season, SPA is committed to supporting teachers and students navigating the challenges of virtual and blended learning. CAP has been adapted to fit within a virtual classroom structure. Sample lesson plans in both Dance & Visual Art are available on this page for educators to implement in their classrooms. For more information and to receive more resources, please contact the SPA Education team.
