Grant Description
Grants of up to $40,000 to Arkansas nonprofit organizations and government agencies to develop arts programming in educational settings. Funding is intended to enable K-12 children to experience the artistic process by inviting professional artists to participate in short-term, long-term, or year-long residencies during the academic year. All artists involved in AIE residencies must be selected from the Arts in Education Artist Roster.

The Arts in Education In-School Residency program places professional artists during the school day or school year in residencies at specific school sites or in conjunction with other nonprofit community or governmental organizations and institutions. The program provides a way for 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 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.
