With the announcement of the closing of all public schools for the foreseeable future – and the shift to alternative means of delivering instruction – the Arts Ed NJ staff have been working overtime to compile a list of resources, technologies and instructional tools to support our arts educators and teaching artist who are now impacted by these rapidly changing events.
We have created a special section of the Arts Ed NJ website with resources for arts educators. We have been working in close consultation with the Art Educators of New Jersey, Dance New Jersey, New Jersey Music Educators Association, Speech and Theatre Association of New Jersey, and New Jersey Thespians to make available these resources to all of our educators and teaching artists. The pages include resources that are applicable to everyone (technology platforms and services) as well as individual pages for each discipline.
In September 2019, New Jersey became the first state in the nation to provide all students with access to arts education in public schools.
