EDUCATION AT ART HOUSE
Education at Art House is offering programs that use the power of the arts to inspire and engage Jersey City youth. The impact of our work is a result of partnerships with teaching artists and arts education organizations throughout New Jersey to reach students, teachers, early career professionals, and audiences.
Education at Art House offers the following programs:
The acclaimed musical theater program just for young performers!

» Fall 2016 & Winter 2017: Art House has partnered with P.S. 5, and New City Kids in Jersey City, NJ to deliver quality after-school classes in drama and public speaking with master teaching artists.
» Winter 2017: Art House Productions and only two other theater companies in New Jersey, McCarter Theater and Paper Mill Playhouse, received funding from The Geraldine R Dodge Foundation which partners with Young Audiences’ Theater To Learn program providing public school teachers with tools to enhance language arts learning. Art House is bringing the Theater To Learn program to all three 2nd grade classrooms at P.S. 22 in Jersey City. The expanded programming was made possible by a generous contribution from the Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise and the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders sponsored by the Hudson County Division of Cultural Affairs Heritage and Tourism.
