VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS EDUCATION

VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS EDUCATION

The Visual and Performing Arts Program of BCOE, which is part of the Coordinated District Support Division, supports existing arts programs in PreK-12 schools, professional learning opportunities for teachers, and new opportunities for students to experience all visual and performaing arts disciplines.
 
We help districts, schools, and teachers provide every PreK-12 student in Butte County, equity, access and excellence in arts education. 
Make Art Often
 
HOW WE DO IT:
 
  • STEAM Career Faire, October 16th, 2019
  • Poetry Out Loud High School Competition, Feb 11, 2020
  • Pilot programs for VAPA education in rural schools
  • Theatre Arts at Table Mountain School for Juvenile Correction in partnership with Slow Theatre
  •  After School Art/History pilot project at a Title 1 junior high school in partnership with Chico Art Center
 
 
We believe every student deserves the opportunity to create, to perform, to learn about and to experience the arts in all forms including music, theater, dance and the visual arts, both in school and out of school, every day.
