Visual and Performing Arts Education Minor
The Arts Education Teaching Sequence, an essential component of the VAPAE minor, comprises three courses (Art&Arc M102, M192, M192SL) in which selected undergraduates explore core issues in arts education, creativity and social justice. Students are assigned to K-12 classrooms in the Los Angeles area, where they first observe and then implement an 8-week sequential arts-based unit plan under the supervision of a credentialed guiding teacher.
VAPAE encompasses arts education courses, internship opportunities, special projects and public presentations offered throughout the year. These events are free, open to the public and widely attended by the UCLA community. Students from all fields of study are encouraged to participate fully in the VAPAE Program, however the VAPAE minor is exclusively available to UCLA Arts majors with extensive training in the School of the Arts and Architecture. ___________________________________________________
