connecting to the curriculum

Our goal is to to inspire artistic and intellectual growth in both students and teachers. That’s why we’re excited to bring the arts to your classroom (or bring your classroom to us) in creative and collaborative ways.

We’ll lead an assembly in your school auditorium, teach in your classroom during a 1 or 8-week in-school residency, energize your students with a SchoolTime performance and help you grow in our professional development sessions.

As a kid I use to attend shows at NJPAC and, even today, I can still remember the vibrancy of each experience. I consider myself so lucky to be able to partner with such a world-class team.

School Assemblies

We’ll come to your school auditorium! Our assemblies are led by professional artists and designed to support your school’s curriculum goals. All assembly programs include a Teacher Resource Guide and a Q&A with the artists.

Schooltime Performances

Introduce your students to the magic of live performance on a field trip to NJPAC. Productions are linked to a range of curriculum areas and you’ll receive a Teacher Resource Guide to facilitate lesson planning.

In-School Residencies

Our professional teaching artists bring the joy of the arts into your classroom for 1 or 8-week residencies. Offerings include dance and movement, early childhood learning, hip hop, literary arts, music, theater and visual arts.

Professional Development

Learn from the best in our cutting-edge arts training for classroom teachers and teaching artists. We offer flexible sessions in school districts or at NJPAC to meet each school community’s specific needs.

Teacher Resource Guides

Our resource guides and curriculum materials are based on New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Each guide contains discussion ideas, activities and reading resources to promote arts literacy in your classroom.
