Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council Announces 2013 Artists in Schools Grants

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is pleased to announce the recipients of our 2013 Artists in Schools grants (formally called the Artists-in-Residence program). The grants are awarded to PreK-12th grade teachers and classrooms in the Shoreline School District. This program has been providing arts education throughout the district since 1993 with the majority of funding made possible through the Shoreline Arts Festival GALA event with additional support from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, government and foundation grants and the community.

This year the Arts Council funded $18,190 in Artists in Schools grants with 21 projects reaching thousands of students in 14 schools and programs. These projects all feature professional teaching artists working with students in the classroom and will take place between January and June 2013. Teachers will be recognized with certificates at the Arts Council Annual Meeting Celebration on February 6, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Third Place Commons, Lake Forest Park Town Center.
