Grants ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 to Montgomery County, Maryland elementary, middle, and high schools to bring teaching artists and arts scholars into the classroom. Artists will work with classroom teachers to provide an arts-integrated activity that will take place during the school day. The program must serve underserved students during the school year and the school day.

Through Arts Integration Residency in the Schools Grants, AHCMC seeks to:

-Provide funding for arts programs that integrate the curriculum of an arts subject and a non-arts subject to reinforce the learning standards of both disciplines

-Connect the arts to the Maryland State Curriculum (MSC)

-Promote diverse arts education offerings and experiences to students in Montgomery County

-Establish direct contacts amongst artists and scholars, classroom teachers, and students through interactive and participatory programs

-Encourage artists and scholars to apply for the Maryland Artist in Residence Roster, and

-Provide access to artists that students would not have otherwise.

$1,000 - $3,000
