Perkins Center for the Arts has been making creativity and inspiration happen since 1977. We are committed to building vibrant communities in NJ through:

Exposure to and education about the arts via experiential arts and cultural programs in our two locations, NJ schools, and NJ communities.
Eliminating barriers to the arts through low tuition classes/workshops, scholarships, free and reduced fee school programs, and free community programming.
Supporting artists through offering low cost working space, exhibition/performance opportunities, employment, and professional development.

Visual Art

Classes are led by practicing artists with exceptional teaching skills who deepen the educational and artistic experience of our participants. Weekly classes and one-day workshops serve youth through adults. They include hands-on activities focusing upon learning arts disciplines, encouraging inter-disciplinary thinking and lifelong learning.

Ceramics

South Jersey’s premier ceramic/clay program is led by the area’s top ceramic artists and includes weekly classes in hand building, potter’s wheel, raku and an associate program. Weekly classes serve youth through adults. Woodfiring workshops at the South Jersey wood kiln are offered throughout the year.

Dance

The dance program is intentionally designed as a non-competitive program whose focus is to provide youth as young as three through adult the opportunity to experience the “joy of dance” without fear. The program is led by professionals who instill the foundation of dance education in an inspiring, fun and friendly environment.

Music

The Conservatory of Music at Perkins Center for the Arts has been the premier provider of private and ensemble music instruction in the region since 1977. Programs support and expand the understanding and appreciation of classical and contemporary music by the greater community while employing and supporting professional musicians who preserve, teach and promote this work.
