TEAL is a dynamic partnership between the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), who provide leadership for the TEAL project. The development and implementation of TEAL brings together arts educators from Los Angeles County, including arts education specialists from the world-class Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and Arts for All, and The California Arts Project (TCAP). Curriculum and technology specialists from the Center for Distance and Online Learning at the Los Angeles County Office of Education collaborate with these highly regarded art entities, faculty and students from the California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), and educators from Los Angeles School Districts and Charter School Networks to develop and deliver the components of TEAL.
TEAL is an example of the power of community partnerships --- public schools, districts, universities, performing arts organizations, museums, statewide arts initiatives and county education staff --- to facilitate this important work. The arts organizations that have given indispensable assistance and guidance to TEAL also support a vast array of arts programs, projects, events, and educational needs throughout the Los Angeles region.
