Program 1

IAHE's commitment to arts education is fulfilled through a variety of arts programs that are firmly rooted in innovative approaches to teaching and learning. These programs include: INTERARTS, our multidisciplinary artist residency and professional development program, utilizes hands-on arts activities in the classroom to animate the new curriculum and workplace readiness standards recently adopted by the State of New Jersey. The NJ Summer Arts Institute (SAI) offers teenagers a unique approach to study in visual arts, drama, creative writing, sound, video and movement. SAI focuses on the creation and performance of original work in all art forms. Family Arts & Creativity is both a teacher-artist professional development and family involvement program developed with the Center for Family Involvement in Schools at Rutgers University. The Arts-in-Education Consortium is comprised of IAHE, Arts Horizons and Young Audiences and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. These organizations manage the state's long-term Artists-in-Residence Program. In addition, IAHE plays a leadership role in the Arts Education Collective, a statewide group that designs and implements training services for teaching artists in New Jersey. Our programs directly serve over 10,000 individuals each year. Sixty percent of the families and teachers we serve are African American, 25% are Anglo and 15% are Latino. More than 50% of the communities and families we serve are low-income, with many households headed by single parents. Governed by a culturally diverse 20-member Board of Trustees, IAHE operates with four full-time and two part-time staff members, one office volunteer and a corps of 15 professional teaching artists who teach on a per project basis.
