Greene County Council on the Arts is offering funds provided by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) for in-school arts programming in Schoharie Counties through the Arts Education (AE) Partnership grant program. These grants provide funds for artists/arts groups or cultural organizations to work in a K-12 public school setting in their county in collaboration with subject teachers. Artists from outside the county may apply through a nonprofit conduit. Projects need to address NYS Learning Standards. Average grant award $500 - $2500.
The application deadline is for Spring 2015 school year programs. A quick turnaround is guaranteed. Technical assistance is available to potential and returning applicants. Give us a shout! We’re here to help.
Eligible projects must focus on the exploration of art and artistic process. Projects must take place during the school day and center on sequential, skills-based study that incorporates one or more art forms and includes a minimum of 3 participatory learning sessions with the same core group of students.
AE regrants fund a maximum of 50% of the project's total cash expenses and should include costs for project evaluation and documentation.
Eligible partnerships must involve a direct collaboration between artist/arts organization applicants and at least one K-12 class at a public school in Schoharie County. Artists/organizations partnering with a school in the same county in which they reside may apply to the program directly. Artists/organizations outside our tri-county service area, those partnering with schools based in counties other than those the artist resides in, and arts organizations who have applied for and/or received NYSCA funding are also eligible but must apply through a locally-registered nonprofit.
