Project Description

The Cathedral Arts Project (CAP) is the leading provider of comprehensive and ongoing instruction in the visual and performing arts for elementary and middle school students in Duval County. Showcasing student work is a mainstay of CAP programs, serving as a reward for students' hard work and reinforcing the self-confidence and maturity fostered in our afterschool programs.

The Visual and Performing Arts Showcases, which take place each spring, are the ultimate finale for all CAP students. Each visual artist is allowed individual exhibition space and each musician, dancer and actor is given appropriate materials with which to perform. From new and properly-fitting dance shoes to appropriately sized violins, CAP ensures all students who create works of art for the showcases are given every opportunity to shine.

For many of our students, when they create a work of art or complete a musical, dramatic or dance performance, it is the first time in their lives they have accomplished something positive and beautiful. Seeing their work on exhibition or hearing applause while on stage, they realize they are successful, valuable individuals, and as such have a future beyond their current social and economic situations. They are motivated to set goals, finish school and become productive adults.

Both events are held in the Spring at professional venues on local college campuses and transportation is provided to ensure nearly 1,000 CAP students can participate.

Please consider helping CAP set the stage for success for the 1718 academic year and our student's Visual and Performing Arts Showcases.

The Cathedral Arts Project's mission is to enrich the quality of life in Northeast Florida through unleashing the creative spirit of young people. By providing access to free standards-based instruction in the visual and performing arts, we empower underserved, school-aged children to succeed in all areas of their lives.
