The Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) announced today that Andrea Temkin, veteran arts educator and former CSMA executive director, has been appointed interim executive director. 

Temkin served as CSMA executive director for eight years (1994-2001). She is a veteran arts administrator with over 30 years of experience, including both art and music education. Since leaving CSMA she has been the principal of AST Consulting Group, providing strategies for change, systems analysis and design and executive coaching for nonprofits, educational institutions and the public sector. Temkin most recently served as the visual and performing arts manager at the Alameda County Office of Education where she worked on a nationally acclaimed arts education model: the Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership project.

Temkin said of her new position, “I am extremely pleased to be able to step in during this transitional time. I have always felt that I never truly left the CSMA family!”

She will serve until a permanent executive director is hired.
