TCAP Joan Peterson Arts Scholar Program 2016Maya Nelson at TCAP Institute

JOAN PETERSON was a founding member of the National Council of State Arts Education Consultants and a catalyst for the development of THE CALIFORNIA ARTS PROJECT. In the mid 80s, Joan Peterson, an outstanding arts educator, was instrumental in bringing together the four arts disciplines taught in California’s public schools to form one cohesive group known as “Visual and Performing Arts.” Her work resulted in the formation of The California Arts Project, or TCAP, one of the California State Subject Matter Projects, which focuses on professional development for teachers. Joan also led the way in the development of the national assessment for art teachers for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. She worked at West Ed., a research Institute in San Francisco, on a variety of educational projects in California and many states across the country. Joan served for many years on TCAP’S Policy Board including two years as chairperson. She was committed to the idea that training teachers improves student learning. This award honors her lifelong belief in this noble cause as well as her hard work and dedication to others.

The California Arts Project created with the support of Joan's two daughters and the California Art Education Association, the annual Joan Peterson Arts Scholar Program. This program selects each year, one to four teachers who wish to attend a TCAP intensive program or institute but need fee support. Each individual selected as a Joan Peterson Scholar will have his or her TCAP program fees waived and in return will share their institute/program experiences, professional reflection and learning. For the 2016-2017 year. TCAP is expanding the Joan Peterson Arts Scholar program to one arts scholar from each TCAP Regional Site. Contact TCAP or your Regional TCAP Director for 2016-2017 programs that qualify.
