The Educational Arts Team, a private nonprofit organization, since 1974 has developed and conducted countless educational and social skills workshops for children, families, and teachers. The Team's innovative approach integrates various art forms, shaped around the needs and goals of the group.
We offer a wide array of in-school and after-school programs for children and families and operate a popular summer day camp located in Liberty State Park. These programs include workshops for students K-12 and professional development for teachers. The programs incorporate age-appropriate drama, writing, storytelling, puppetry, music, dance and visual art activities as strategies for promoting learning, teaching basic academic subject areas, encouraging positive social experiences, and promoting positive relationships.
Assessment studies on a number of in-school projects have shown that a combination of professional development and student workshops can significantly improve State of New Jersey standardized test scores for students in grades 3 to 7.
