Grants of up to $10,000 to Arkansas nonprofit organizations, agencies, churches, hospitals, public schools, and IHEs to host professional artists to work with pre-K-12 youth in summer and after-school settings. Funding is intended for residencies that take place in community centers, juvenile facilities, low-income housing projects, parks and recreation programs, social service centers, boys and girls clubs, and other facilities that provide programming and guidance during non-school hours. Artists used for AIE After-School/Summer Residencies must be selected from the Arts in Education Artist Roster: http://www.arkansasarts.org/Grants/Available-Grants/Arts-in-Education/Arts-in-Education-Artist-Roster/roster
Possible residency disciplines include crafts, dance, design arts, folk arts, literature, music, opera and musical theater, photography and media arts, theater, visual arts, multi-disciplinary arts, and interdisciplinary arts. Residencies will provide opportunities for youth to participate in and learn about the arts from professional artists. Artists assist in enhancing the powers of perception and self-expression of the youth involved and in acquiring such character-centered skills as concentration, individual discipline, and team participation.
During a residency, artists are based at a site where they work with the AIE program coordinator and staff members to develop programs and activities based on the site's needs and facilities. At the site, artists may be involved in such activities as instructing and guiding youth participants, presenting community workshops, advising activity groups, presenting lectures and demonstrations, organizing exhibitions and performances initiating field trips, helping to develop arts curricula/materials, and enhancing parent and community involvement in the program.
AIE After-School/Summer Residency programs may vary in length and have different goals and budget constraints:
