VAPAE offers courses designed to introduce undergraduates to key issues and methodologies in the field of arts education and to a broad range of careers in the arts, including K-12 teaching, community arts education, museum education, art therapy, and arts advocacy. 

In response to pressing needs in our local schools, VAPAE’s Afterschool & Community Arts Enrichment Programs offer students in the Los Angeles area supportive and constructive out-of-school arts activities. 

VAPAE faculty and staff are a diverse team of practicing artists and scholars trained in contemporary arts pedagogy, committed to social justice and community engagement through the arts.
