The St. Lawrence County Arts Council will be offering grant workshops that could provide up to $2,500 to inspire creative teaching partnerships between local schools in the tri-county area.
Art$TART grants will be offered for the 2011/2012 school year for any interested school in St. Lawrence, Jefferson or Lewis Counties.
The grant opportunity supports collaboratively planned projects by teachers and participating artists that enrich student education in and through the arts, bolstering a cross-curriculum approach which goes beyond the classic art room setting.
Arts in Education grant coordinator, Robert Fowler, will conduct information workshops for the art$TART - Arts in Education grants to help teachers and artists understand the guidelines and application materials required for successful proposals.
Anyone interested in applying for an art$TART grant may attend these free workshops for more information. Deadlines for applications are Friday, July 20th.
Anyone interested must register with the SLC Arts Council by contacting 315-265-6860.
