VAPAE was honored to be invited by CA State Senator Ben Allen to join an impressive group of local arts leaders for a Breakfast and Arts Discussion at the new @wendemuseum in Culver City. VAPAE Director Dr. Kevin Kane represented VAPAE and the School of the Arts & Architecture, hearing updates on the statewide commitment to issues of equity, diversity and inclusion in the arts. .

What just happened? Another 3 day Teacher Institute partnering with the @hammer_museum and @uclavapae in the books, but its going to take us all at least another month of processing the wealth of thought and creativity that occurs when teachers are your students. Today I helped educators make block print costuming for their performance of an original poetry and movement piece within a #LaurenHalsey installation.

Omg! It’s last day of our #uclavapae program spring fundraising campaign. It turns out it’s not easy at all for me to ask my friends and family to support the beautiful arts programs we are doing in our community, the innovative coursework we are offering within #uclaarts brag about the arts projects we are creating in our classes, and the positive difference we are making on our campus and in the lives of students all around the city. But that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in this program and this cause with all my heart! Please consider donating – any little bit can help provide these programs and courses next year ($5, $10, $25, $100... anything!!) Help us meet our target goal for our #uclaspark campaign 🙏👍🏼❤️ Here’s the link, plus link in bio: https://spark.ucla.edu/project/9820 #artsforall #prouddirector #artssaveslives

Something to SPARK About❣️

Today, we celebrate the amazing career of an Artist, Professor, Community Leader, Arts Educator, Arts Advocate, and Founder of VAPAE: Barbara Drucker 💙❤️
.
On an recent interview, Barbara said - “It was also important to connect the program to the community of Los Angeles. I began the teaching sequence for our VAPAE students in the K–12 classrooms across the city because I wanted our students to experience first-hand the reality that these teachers have to face daily. Students that go through VAPAE—whether they decide to pursue teaching as a career or not—develop respect for K–12 teachers, and that can affect policy. Politicians often state that the teachers are irresponsible and lazy, that they're not working hard, and that they're not doing the right thing. Our students have gone into those schools, and know first-hand that most teachers are working as hard as they can, and are very devoted to their students. VAPAE students can then take that knowledge and become informed community members and policy advocates for teachers and public education.

While most VAPAE students do not go on to become full-time teachers, through our program, they learn how they can engage with and contribute to their communities. They learn how they can incorporate outreach and social justice into their artistic practice, in addition to developing their professional careers.”

Jessi is a reason to SPARK!

“I graduated this past June from the VAPAE program, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. While I had experience of teaching dance in a studio setting from high school, VAPAE provided me with so many more tools and techniques to adapt my teaching methods to the school classroom. Hands-on learning & experiences are the best way for me to learn, so it was so great to put my teaching skills to the test.” 🌱

Last Saturday was Bruin Day and the UCLA campus welcomed approximately 17k visitors; potential new Bruins and potentially new VAPAE minors. However, we are so proud of these two: Amorette and Raymundo. They graduated Summa Cum Laude and completed the VAPAE minor, and now they’re running the VAPAE program.

March 17th, 2018: the formerly incarcerated & system impacted youth of Agency Arts take center stage on the UCLA campus.
.
YOU’LL WANT TO BE THERE.
.
ACT TWO
An Agency Arts production
Saturday, March 17th @ 7pm

UCLA Northwest Campus Auditorium

200 De Neve Dr. Los Angeles CA 90024 
FREE!! LINK IN BIO!! RSVP TODAY!! .
.
In a dystopian society, where more and more money is spent on an ever-expanding jail system, two youth find the power to fight back... .
.
Created and performed by an ensemble of formerly incarcerated and system-impacted youth, ages 15-21, ACT TWO is the result of an 10-week performing arts intensive led by the teaching artists of Agency Arts and the UCLA VAPAE Program.
.
Through magical realism, movement, and poetry, this original piece of collaboratively devised theater bravely confronts the crisis of incarceration, and our power to transform it through the creative visions and voices of our community's young artists.
.
Join us for an evening of performance, to support our youth in creatively reimagining how knowledge and art can be used as power in the movement to end incarceration, deconstruct the school-to-prison pipeline, and reinvest resources into a more just and liberated future. .
.
Admission is FREE.  Reservations are required.  Tickets are available on Eventbrite.  LINK IN BIO!

Day 4 - Classroom-in-Residence at the Hammer (CRH) “Getting Inside the Picture” was today’s lesson at CRH.

Students were also asked to envision and create tableaux as a group, and based on the time lapse video, everybody had a blast!
We ended the day by learning about the Hammer Museum’s social media footprint; and of course WE HAD to take a ride on the Heatherwick Spun Chairs❣️🌪 #uclavapae #hammermuseum #vapaeinthecommunity #artsforall #internationalwomensday

Today, we started our session at MASA by asking participants the following question: Can paper bleed? 
As you can see, the challenge became an opportunity to explore how tissue paper, water and other liquids can render beautiful hues. #uclavapae #tissuepaperbleedingart #vapaemasa #arts #inallforms  #arte

Our most recent project at Studio Sessions at Emerson Middle School deals with problems the students identified in their community. They are working on gouache panels where one will depict their chosen conflict and the other the proposed solution 🌞#gouache #illustration #artsforall #uclavapae #artseducation #artsinthecommunity  #studiosessionsatemerson
