Courses at NJPAC

NJPAC offers Professional Development sessions in school districts or at NJPAC at different price points. Professional Development can be customized to meet each school community’s specific needs. Teachers and curriculum supervisors are invited to reach out to us to create a customized session. We have provided course descriptions of programs that have been previously offered.

Through our national partnerships with The Kennedy Center and Wolf Trap, NJPAC draws from a roster of master teaching artists who regularly come to NJPAC to deliver world-class professional development workshops.

Courses include a professional development certificate, printed resource materials, catered breakfast and lunch.
