NJPAC’s Arts Education program has amplified student voices for decades. Now, we’re taking it to the next level with our exciting new initiative, the Colton Institute for Training and Research in the Arts at NJPAC. The Colton Institute develops creative kids, teens and young adults through Saturday classes, summer camps, coaching, career mentorship and professional performance opportunities. The Colton Institute also develops creative arts educators with leading-edge training for school districts, teachers and NJPAC faculty. All of this combines with dynamic research and innovation to serve as a national model for what 21st century arts education can be.
