Grants of up to $20,000 to California arts nonprofits and local arts agencies to provide arts programming to K-12 schools during or after school hours. Funding is intended to supplement the activities of teachers and school arts programs by bringing arts from the community into the school. Artists in Schools projects focus on hands-on participant learning that takes place over a sustained period of time (typically a minimum of 10 class sessions) with an identified group of students. All aspects of the program must be free of charge to students.
The Artists in Schools program supports projects that integrate community arts partners into culturally and learning for students in preschool through Grade 12 as part of the regular school day, and that address the unique circumstances of the school environment.
Projects should address the following Artists in Schools program goals:
