The new application process is officially open for The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council’s Artists in Schools residency program.

Celebrating its 22th year, the program provides expanded arts learning opportunities for students and teachers in the Shoreline School District. This program places professional teaching artists in all art forms at schools for curriculum-based residencies.

Teachers and administrators in the Shoreline School District from Pre-K up to 12th grade may apply for this grant program. The Arts Council offers a Joint Grant Application with the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation. Interested applicants may submit their request and apply to both agencies - or select one agency for grant consideration. A teacher must be the main contact on the application, but parents, artists or community members may take the lead in writing the application.

The majority of funding is made possible through the Arts Council’s annual GALA event with additional support from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, government and foundation grants and community donations to the Arts Council.

This year the Arts Council is looking to fund $18,000 in grants hoping to reach all schools in the district. The application deadline is Thursday, November 12, 2015.

For questions, please contact Kelly Lie, Arts Education Manager, Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, or 206-417-4645.

The grant application materials and a listing of past recipients may be found on the website.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate creativity and inspire our community through the arts.
