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


Studio Institute has launched a new partnership with La Casa de Don Pedro Head Start Programs in Newark. Thanks to the support of the Turrell Foundation, we have trained local professional artists to work with children and families in several Head Start programs in Newark. We are looking forward to expanding to additional sites in early 2020.

Educators learn how to provide a space that allows children to make independent choices and create artwork on their own. (Below: PreK students at La Casa First Street create torn paper collages.)
