#CaArtsEdChat on Twitter 

Every Wednesday at 4:00 P.M. 

Join @PCrooks_VAPA and arts education experts from across the state for a Twitter Chat every Wednesday from 4:00 PST. We are growing a statewide virtual professional learning community for educators, artists, and others passionate about arts education. Let’s chat about the new state arts standards, best practices, and the great things happening in your classes. If you have never Twitter Chatted, here is the helpful website with instructions. 

November's theme is CREATING, one of the four artistic processes addressed by the California Arts Standards.  December's theme will be on PERFORMING, PRODUCING, and PRESENTING.
