Grants of up to $40,000 to Arkansas nonprofit organizations, government agencies, churches, hospitals, public schools, and IHEs to give K-12 students the opportunity to learn from professional artists. Resident artists will engage with students during the school day or school year.

The residency allows artists to demonstrate their art form, create, or perform works of art so that participants may observe the creative process and relate their art form to other K-12 curriculum areas.

The In-School Residency Program is designed to strengthen the role of the arts in education with the understanding that the development of aesthetic awareness and participation in the arts should be an integral part of life and the basic education process.

Grant funds are supplementary to the budget of any grantee. Applicants are encouraged to secure and demonstrate broadly based financial commitments for the proposal submitted.

-Crafts - clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, paper, plastic, wood, mixed media, jewelry
