As part of its ongoing commitment to arts education, the Kennedy-Douglass Art Center announces that applications are now being accepted for grants for art supplies for 2019 projects. The program is designed to assist art teachers with special programs that require items not included in their existing budgets. The program is open to both Lauderdale and Colbert County art instructors, and is intended for elementary and junior high students. Teachers are encouraged to apply for projects that include multi-disciplinary topics, such as the Alabama Bicentennial, as well as joint initiatives such as artist-in-residence with other organizations such as the Alabama Arts Council. In January 2018, grants were awarded to six schools for a variety of projects including paints and paper, clay, and art display panels.
All participating schools will be invited to display their art work at Arts Alive 2019.
To apply, teachers can fill in the attached form and return it to the Kennedy-Douglass Art Center by December 14, or download a copy from the Kennedy-Douglass Facebook page (kdartcenter), or web page (kdartcenter.org), HERE and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Recipients of grants must provide receipts and a written or oral report to the Endowments committee. If you have questions, please contact Christi Britten at 256-760-6381.
This grant is made possible by the Kennedy-Douglass Art Center Volunteers, a non-profit organization using proceeds from Arts Alive and other fund raising events.
