The New Jersey Arts Education Collective is a partnership of Arts Education organizations whose mission is to provide the highest quality professional development for Teaching Artists and the arts education community.

We believe Teaching Artists offer a unique contribution to the lives of students, teachers and communities. We envision a network of support between Teaching Artists and arts education specialists to develop skills, share resources and strengthen the field to benefit New Jersey’s students by providing essential/critical learning of and through the arts.
