The Clifton Public Schools Visual & Performing Arts Department offers a comprehensive arts education for all K-12 students through course offerings in visual art, music, theatre, TV/film, and dance. Our staff of professional educators delivers balanced, rigorous instruction designed to help students fulfill their individual, artistic potential. Our art teachers provide all students the opportunity to explore expression, imagination, and creativity through the visual and performing arts and prepare learners to be successful in a global, 21st-century society.
The school-based curriculum is enriched by additional programming for all students through community partnerships with many organizations, including (but not limited to) The NJ Symphony Orchestra, the Clifton Arts Center, and the 'Little Kids Rock' organization. Extended instruction opportunities enhance learning for student performers interested in theatre, choir, band, orchestra, jazz, or dance through performance opportunities in any of the district's many award-winning ensembles. Visual art students have their paintings and drawings displayed throughout the year at the board of education building.
Students find inspiration, develop cultural awareness, and make a humanistic connection through an arts education in the Clifton Public Schools.
