Perkins Center for the Arts is an educational resource for State Certified Teachers.

With approval from each teacher’s school district, teachers can earn professional development hours by participating in any course, music lesson or workshop offered by the Center. Teachers need to request a Professional Development Documentation form from Perkins at the time of registration. A completed form will be provided to teachers at the end of the course.  It is up to each individual to confirm with his/her school district that the class will qualify toward profession development hours.

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts provides numerous opportunities to artists living in New Jersey, including professional development. Visit their website for a list of current offerings.
