Grants of up to $5,000 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania public school teachers for arts-based, teacher-led classroom projects. Applicants must attend an information session prior to applying. Funding is intended for collaborative projects with at least two teachers working together. The program can be viewed as an opportunity for teachers to think beyond the traditional and dream big, using the venues of music, art, theater, dance, and digital media as their muse.
PCCY believes that by integrating the arts into other educational curricular areas the classroom can come alive for students and teachers. Though teacher applicants may use external resources such as teaching artist, arts organizations, and community partners to achieve their goals, it is not a requirement.
As an outgrowth of PCCY’s commitment to youth advocacy, grant recipients will engage in advocacy activities to support equitable arts education funding for Philadelphia’s public schools. Previous Picasso Project advocacy efforts have included creating artwork, music, and performance with arts advocacy message, visiting City Council and Board of Education meetings to share projects, sending letters/artwork to elected officials, and mounting a social media campaign.
Projects should include at least 20 hours of intensive project activities (during the school day) and involve at least one classroom of students directly impacted by the project. Applications must demonstrate that at least two teachers (project leader and additional teacher) are collaborating on the project.
