Central to the mission and values of the Berrie Center is a desire to educate through the arts and reach a broad spectrum of individuals in our community. The guest performing artist series accomplishes this via a variety of masterclasses, workshops, artist discussions, and outreach programs.
New Perspectives Curriculum Guide
New Perspectives is an educational resource guide that connects the Berrie Center Performing Artist Series to the general education curriculum of Ramapo College of NJ. Launched in spring 2022, this guide also provides patrons an inside look into our work.

P.S. 28 Partnership
In spring 2020, the Berrie Center began a relationship with P.S. 28 in Paterson, NJ, a PreK-8 serving Blue-Ribbon public school with a total enrollment of approximately 430 children. This opportunity came about through an already standing relationship between Ramapo College of NJ’s Teacher Education Department and P.S. 28 to prepare college students for teaching in the nuances of an urban environment.
In the summer of 2021, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) awarded the Berrie Center with an Arts Education Special Initiative (AESI) grant. This funding support over two years will allow the Berrie Center to bring several specific programs and outreach activities to the students at P.S. 28 to enhance their learning through the arts.
