Cabrillo College VAPA Department Hosts K-12 Arts Specialists

On April 23rd, the VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) Department at Cabrillo College, in collaboration with the SCCOE, once again welcomed over 30 arts teachers from throughout Santa Cruz County for an exciting afternoon of professional development. Cabrillo instructors were more than generous in offering various specialist workshops to the teachers in visual arts, music and theater.

The afternoon was a huge success and a very important step in the articulation between public school teachers and the local community college. A big thank-you to all the Cabrillo College instructors who were so welcoming and willing to share their expertise, and especially to John Graulty who has worked with the Arts Coordinator at the County Office of Education throughout the year in order to facilitate this wonderful event.
