The Arts Education Program provides support for diverse and challenging arts learning in schools and communities. The Commission believes all young people should have an arts education that is curriculum-based, linked to content standards, and enriched by ongoing opportunities to work with artists and community-based authentic arts resources.
To achieve this goal, the Arts Education Program encourages teachers, artists, arts organizations, and communities to work cooperatively to foster the learning and artistic development of Idaho students and teachers in grades K-12.
The Arts Education Program encourages extensive learning in the arts through effective planning. A successful written plan to support an Arts Education Project application represents effective leadership, team-building, partnership, and outreach to stakeholders. It characterizes decisions that are based on up-to-date, accurate information and data, and are aligned with a vision of what it means to value the arts. Moreover, it represents an ongoing commitment to carrying out strategies, measuring progress, and sharing results.
QUICKFUNDS (quarterly) For short-term projects or professional development that serve Idaho students.
ARTS EDUCATION PROJECT GRANTS (annually) Are available to support substantial activities that unite effective practices in education and the arts to serve Idaho students and involve schools, artists, and community organizations.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
