Grants of up to $5,000 to Maryland individual artists, nonprofit organizations, and schools for arts projects and programs that benefit children and youth in eligible locations. Funding is intended to provide arts and cultural activities in public educational settings from early childhood through high school. Emphasis should be given to providing sequential instruction to deepen each student’s learning about the subject and experience. Eligible activities benefit youth in Prince George’s County.

Programs or projects may include but are not limited to arts instruction, arts integration improvements, artist in residency, in-school performances, field trip experiences, arts integration curriculum development, creative placemaking, as well as professional development. 

Funding is distributed in five categories: 

  • School-Based Projects take place during the traditional school day for students, whether in classrooms or at an outside venue. Activities must directly benefit Prince George’s County Public School students and directly connect to curricula standards and instructional programs occurring at those schools. Evaluation criteria for School-Based Programs emphasize strong curriculum-based design.
  • Artist in Residency Projects are participatory, standards-based learning experiences led by a teaching artist during the regular school day with the support and active engagement of the classroom teacher. The teaching artist(s) work with the same group of students for a minimum of five (5) classroom sessions and collaborate with the classroom teacher before and throughout the residency to ensure the lessons are aligned with the classroom curriculum.
  • Community-Based Projects take place outside of the traditional school day, such as at after-school, weekend or summer programs and events. Programs may be associated with schools, community-based settings, creative placemaking initiatives, arts or cultural institutions, or cultural exchange programs.
  • Public Art Partnership Projects directly engage Prince George’s County permanent or temporary public art installations. Students will participate in a hands-on program designed through collaboration with lead artist or classroom teacher.
  • Professional Development Projects include conference attendance/related fees, and accessing or implementation of high-quality artistic training opportunities for educators working in public education settings. Trainings must build skills capacity for the development, or enhancement of arts disciplines and/or integration of standards-based arts instruction with non-arts academic content. Applicants must reside and teach in Prince George’s County.

Examples of allowable costs for Arts in Education Programs:

  • Teaching artists and art consultants;
  • Salaries for arts educators for nonprofit organizations
  • Materials, supplies, and small equipment purchases that are directly related to project implementation; and
  • Travel and transportation directly related to project implementation.
