The Florida Keys Council of the Arts reminds artists and teachers of the November 30 deadline for Artists in Schools Grant applications available at: www.keysarts.com/grants.html
Artists in Schools grants support collaboration between teaching artists and teachers to bring innovative arts into the classroom for grades preK-12 at all Monroe County schools. The Artists in Schools project encourages teachers of all subjects and artists of all disciplines to design creative projects together to enhance the existing curriculum. Projects receiving funding in this cycle must take place during the second semester of the school year. Grants range up to $1,000. Over $93,500 has been awarded to date.
Artists in Schools projects are made possible in part by the sale of Florida State of the Arts license tags, the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the Ocean Reef Foundation, the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts.
Questions and assistance in completing the application is always available by contacting the Florida Keys Council of the Arts at 295-4369 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
