Schoharie County Arts Education Grants for 2015 Spring School Year

Written By Timothy Knight on 3/2/15 | 3/2/15

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 March 31, 2015 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. 

Contact: For Applications/Information contact Director of Community Arts & Arts Education Grants at Greene County Council on the Arts, 398 Main Street, P.O. Box 463, Catskill, NY 12414. 518-943-3400 or email Colettegcca@hotmail.com

The Arts Education Partnership grant program is funded and supported by the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), a state agency, with additional support from Stewarts Shops.
