Grants of up to $1,000 to Wicomico County, Maryland PreK-12 schools and teachers for arts education programs. Proposals can include artist residencies or assemblies to work with a class or school, bus trips to a metropolitan arts organization, or commission of a work, such as a mural, sculpture, or painting. The program should be interdisciplinary in nature.

The following areas will be considered appropriate for grant requests.

1. Residencies/Assemblies
A residency or assembly brings a paid artist (who must be a resident of Maryland) to work in close proximity with a class or school. SWAC encourages residencies and assemblies that cross curriculum lines and incorporate the arts into other curriculum areas.

2. Bus Trips
This grant application can also support bus trips to a metropolitan arts organization within Maryland or it can support trips to local arts travel.) Your application should show how these bus trips augment your existing arts program and incorporate the arts into other curriculum areas.

Trips to Center Stage in Baltimore, The Walters Art Gallery, The Avalon Theatre in Easton, etc. are appropriate. Local trips for special programs at the Art Institute & Gallery, The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Furnace Town, Julia Purnell Museum, Pemberton Hall, Poplar Hill Mansion and Chipman Center, for example, are also appropriate.

3. Commission of a Work
Your school may want to create a permanent artistic addition to its physical plant. It may want to commission a paid mural, sculpture, or painting. In this category the artist, who must be a resident of Maryland, need not work directly with students, but by working on site will interact with students, be available to answer students' questions about artistic processes and act as a role model in the arts. Commission applications must show how the work theme or topic relates to the school or class.
