Multiple schools in New Jersey, including Middle Township High School, have been chosen to receive an educational arts grant in the form of $10,000 from the Artists in Education Residency Grant Program.

Courtesy of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, this grant will allow for what Artists In Education call a "teaching artist" to enhance the school's artistic emphasis.

Samantha Clarke, an administrator for the Artists in Education Residency Grant Program, says, "The twenty-day residency provides professional development in the visual, performing, and literary arts, in-school workshop days with a professional teaching artist, and a community-based culminating event. AIE residencies focus on direct learning about the arts and the processes of creating art, including the skills, techniques and concepts of the art form."
