Co-sponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and Arts Horizons and now in its 40th year, the acclaimed New Jersey Artist/Teacher Institute (aTi) immerses classroom teachers, educators and artists in hands-on workshops in the performing, visual, literary and digital arts led by master teaching artists. aTi participants discover new pathways to creative teaching and learning in and through the arts while igniting their artistry and connecting with a community of peers.
