TASC believes that teaching artists can and should play a front-line role in engaging Californians in lifelong learning. We believe every student in California’s schools deserves to engage with all arts disciplines (dance, music, theatre, literary and visual arts) every day as part of a well-rounded, high-quality education. We understand that learning occurs throughout one’s lifespan and that the arts are a meaningful tool for all ages in every community to learn, engage and celebrate. Our network includes teaching artists and arts administrators with varying years of experience and expertise representing education, community social service and arts organizations from across the state. TASC builds public awareness for the value and role of teaching artists in the community, shares best practices and resources for delivering quality arts education experiences and advocates for the professional status of teaching artists.
