From an individual workshop to a long term residency, Pushcart makes arts education come alive. Our programs are uniquely designed to meet your needs.
HERE’S WHAT WE’RE WORKING ON THIS YEAR
The Learning Center
FROM PAGE TO STAGE
A story-telling theater program. Each week from October to June, teaching artist Gerry Fierst conducts in-depth classes on the art of story telling. In three segments exploring folk tales, family history, and poetry, students create and perform their own work, and reap all the educational and social benefits of doing so!
The Learning Center has two schools — one dedicated to serving the needs of regular education students through eighth grade and the other to students on the Autism spectrum and with other cognitive disabilities in preschool through high school.
From January through June, Pushcart Players is the Non-Profit Arts Partner in this after-school literacy initiative. In one session out of five each week, Pushcart teaches the theatrical component of a program that provides students with active participation in multiple art forms. AIM to ACHIEVE addresses NJ Student Language Arts Standards for comprehension, fluency and writing, and NJ Arts Standards of Theater, Music and Visual Art.
PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE of STUDENT SHOWS
At schools, learning centers, and camps in New Jersey, New York and Arizona
KIDS DO BROADWAY
A program that spans from three weeks to four months. Pushcart’s professional stage directors and teaching artists guide student performances of popular American musicals that have played the Great White Way. And through our “Pushcart Jr.” series, titles in the Pushcart repertoire are adapted for large student casts.
Pushcart provides technical production elements and coordinates the collaboration of students, teachers, parents, and community.
