Art Education Grants


Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts Volunteers

Arts Education Funding Program

The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts Volunteers is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that works with the Kennedy-Douglass Art Center to promote arts in the Shoals area. We hold annual fund-raising events such as Arts Alive Festival and Holly and Ivy holiday luncheons.   The proceeds from these events and other grants are used to fund educational and community projects.

This year, the Volunteers are offering Arts Education grants for educators in elementary and middle schools.  We will consider requests for art supplies, special art programs, and tuition for art camps.  Applications for the 2017-2018 school year are due by November 15, 2017. (Please check back for the next application cycle this Spring)

You may apply by downloading the “KD Arts Education Grant Request” form.   You can use the Adobe Reader app to edit the form and submit it on-line or you can print, fill in by hand, and mail a paper copy to the Art Center.   If you have questions about the process, contact the Art Center at (256) 760-6379, check our Facebook page at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts, or email

We look forward to hearing from you.
