  • CAA Students Engage in QC Opportunities

    CAA Students have been busy exploring and expanding their talents through many opportunities with business partners!  Below are just a few photos from some of the opportunities!  Many thanks to everyone who has partnered with us to give our students such enriching learning experiences!

    On Thursday March 10th, CAA Dream Music Students , alongside a few students from West and North, attended a 90-minute Master Class with Jazz Violinist Christian Howes.  Howes has been named one of the top rising jazz violinists by numerous polls and journals and is the founder of “Creative Strings,” a non-profit that aims to expand music education through online curriculum development and school visits to teach improvisation, contemporary styles, and other topics pertinent to budding musicians.  This Master Class was made possible by the Creative Arts Academy’s partnership with the River Music Experience.

    Dance 1CAA Theatre/Dance students did a workshop with the University of Iowa’s Dance majors at the Figge Art Museum.  Junior High and College students alike enjoyed the experience, while CAA students learned more about what studying dance in higher education is like. We are grateful they were able to travel to Davenport to provide our students with such an enriching experience!
