Grants of up to $3,000 are available to Indiana K-12 schools and teaching artists to form partnerships that will lead to successful development and implementation of educational projects to take place during school hours. Projects can be inter- or cross-disciplinary initiatives that encourage integrated arts learning of focus on a specific art process. The inclusion of an event, exhibition, concert or performance that is free and open to the public as part of the program is strongly encouraged.
Qualified applicants will be asked to develop a balanced and working partnership to help develop and implement a successful educational project. The role of the partnership is seen as an enhancement to the work of the professional educator in the educational setting, not intended to replace staff or faculty. All projects must include and meet a minimum of five (5) current Indiana Academic Standards. Current standards may be found on the Indiana Department of Education website.
The IAC believes the arts are an essential part of a balanced, quality education and a vehicle for increasing critical thinking skills. Where they exist, schools must involve their arts specialist in all phases of this project. The IAC also recommends the involvement of other teachers, parents, and administrators.
