Teaching Artist Directory
This directory is a resource for all schools and community-based organizations (CBO’S) in the City of Newark, New Jersey. Any public school, charter, independent and/or CBO may review the information on the NAC website and downloadable PDF and select teaching artists to work with, using school and CBO funds. Artists in this directory have received training related to a variety of pedagogies such as arts integration and NJDOE Core Curriculum Content Standards (CCCS) standards for the visual and performing arts.
Public, independent, and charter schools may choose one or more artists from this directory with whom to work with based on an identified need; adjunct after-school services, In-School- Time (IST) residencies with an arts integration focus, and exposure arts education such as assembly programs, etc.
Inclusion in this teaching artist directory is not an assurance for the artists to work with Newark public, charter and independent schools, but only artists represented in the directory may have the opportunity to be called upon by the schools and/ or CBO’S to work at the duration and rigor identified. Schools will require District approval of any artists selected before work may begin. All artists included in the directory must obtain current criminal background checks and child abuse clearances.
Schools (public, independent and charter) are responsible for securing authorization to hire teaching artists.
