Grants of up to $40,000 to Arkansas nonprofit organizations, government agencies, churches, hospitals, schools, and IHEs to develop arts programming in educational settings. Funding is intended to foster interactions with K-12 children by inviting professional artists to participate in residencies during the academic year.
During the In-School Residency program, an artist is based in a preK-12 school or community organization site where he or she works with the applying organization’s AIE Program and/or on-site coordinator and key staff to develop programs and activities based on the school/site's needs and facilities.
At the school/site, the artist may instruct students, conduct in-service workshops for teachers or staff, advise activity groups, present lectures and demonstrations to local community organizations, organize exhibitions of work by students, teachers or themselves, initiate field trips, supervise student projects, and encourage and develop arts curricula and materials.
Included in an In-School Residency program is a requirement for an in-service workshop to be conducted by the artist for the teachers/administrators/staff involved with the residency program.
