Education & Engagement

CAPA's Education & Engagement Department believes everyone in our community deserves to experience the transformative power of the arts.

CAPA’s Education & Engagement programs enrich the lives of Central Ohio residents by providing free and low-cost creative experiences that are varied, diverse and accessible. We believe everyone in our community deserves to experience the transformative power of the arts and our many community collaborations enable us to fulfill that belief.​

Passport to Learning Series

Take your students on a journey of learning with CAPA’s Passport to Learning Student Matinee Series. Carefully selected to enhance curriculum and make learning fun, this series makes history, math, science, and literature come alive by using the power of the arts on the stages of Columbus’ finest historical theatres. 

CAPA Marquee Awards

The CAPA Marquee Awards are designed to celebrate, support, and advocate for high school musical theatre education throughout Central Ohio. 

Community Engagement

Because we strive to bring the transformative power of the arts into our community, each year Education & Engagement creates one or more projects at no charge to participants. Each project is designed with a particular performance and/or theme in mind, so the experience has a lasting effect on the community.

Careers in the Arts

This video series will help students in grades 6-12 explore the many career opportunities the fine and performing arts have to offer.
