The Arts

Arts Education is a critical component in the development of the whole child. Creating art engages the students’ minds and helps to develop all aspects of thinking. Our children will need the skills afforded through the arts to be leaders in the fast paced 21st century. The arts provide skills that enable students to be creative and fully participate in a global society. Acceptance of all races, ethnic groups and cultures is the foundation for living and working in the 21st century. Through the study of the Arts, children are exposed to a variety of cultures which fosters an understanding and appreciation for those cultures. All children in the Newark Public Schools will have an equal access to a sequential arts program that is aligned to the NJCCCS.
