Two grants to help your school hire Mary!

Showcasing the Arts

The Showcasing the Arts Grant enables Kentucky teachers and schools to offer students high quality in-school arts experiences or after-school co-curricular arts experiences, enhanced by artist lecture/demonstrations regarding the creative process. Programs demonstrate creating, performing, responding and connecting, as specified in the Kentucky Academic Standards for the Arts and/or English Language Arts. Grants will provide artists’ fees. Schools are required to provide space, technical arrangements and artists’ travel reimbursement.  

Teaching Art Together

The Teaching Art Together Grant lets teachers collaborate with practicing, professional artists on the design and implementation of innovative one- to four-week residencies. Residencies provide teachers with the tools to continue to incorporate the arts into the curriculum after the residency is completed.
