Grants for Integrating Visual Art into the Curriculum
The P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education offers Teacher Art Grants of up to $1,000 to support new or evolving programs that integrate the arts into educational programming in a classroom setting. The grants are intended to aid K–12 teachers who desire to use the arts in teaching children who learn differently. The funds support teachers in establishing or maintaining an effective hands-on learning tool using the visual arts (such as drawing, painting, sculpting, ceramics, architecture, printmaking, and photography). The projects must take place during the school day in schools serving all children, including students who learn differently. Teachers awarded grants in the past have incorporated art projects into other curricula, including math, science, and geography.
Deadline: Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2021
