Studio Institute–Newark
Discovery-based learning. Programs for students, pre-K through college.
Customized visual arts programming and professional development.


In 2020, with funding from the Turrell Foundation, Studio Institute trained a roster of local professional artists to support a pre-K partnership program in Newark.

In collaboration with local partner, La Casa de Don Pedro, we launched an Early Childhood program in Newark at three Head Start sites.

This year, our partnership has expanded to include seven sites: two Early Head Start programs serving children from 1-1/2 to 3-years of age, and five Head Start programs serving children from age 3 to 4-1/2.

Part-Time Paid Opportunities

Studio artists work with children and young people at daycare and early learning centers, libraries, or in after-school programs, playing a key role in fostering family and community engagement. We are now reviewing applications for part-time opportunities in Newark this fall. Apply now to join a community of artists. Learn more.
