Teaching Artistry

A central focus of CCAP’s work is to develop and promote the practice of the teaching artist.* Over the last few years, Columbia College and CCAP have earned a national reputation as an incubator and innovator in the field. CCAP works to improve the capacity and practice of teaching artists to provide deeper, more meaningful learning opportunities for their students.

*“A teaching artist is a practicing professional artist with the complementary skills, curiosities and sensibilities of an educator, who can effectively engage a wide range of people in learning experiences in, through, and about the arts.” – Eric Booth
