The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey’s community engagement programs reflect our commitment to making art accessible to all audiences. These programs deliver engaging educational visual arts experiences to under-served, economically disadvantaged, and marginalized audiences. We serve the immediate community of Summit, as well as the surrounding Hudson, Union, Essex, Sussex, and Somerset Counties.
PROGRAMS FOR SPECIAL AUDIENCES
The Art Center carefully designs these programs to augment the services provided by our partner institutions. These programs encourage self-expression and explore creative processes, tools, and techniques.
ARTS ALIVE INITIATIVE
Created in partnership with Elizabeth Public Schools, the Arts Alive Initiative brings students to the Art Center for an in-depth sequential learning arts education program that expands their knowledge and understanding of contemporary art.
