Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council 2015-2016 Artists in Schools grants

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

The Artists in Schools Grants are awarded to PreK-12th grade teachers in the Shoreline School District and feature professional teaching artists working with students in the classroom. The projects take place during the 2015-2016 academic year with most taking place in late winter and spring.

Artists in Schools has been providing arts education throughout the district since 1993, with the majority of funding made possible through the Arts Council’s annual Gala for the Arts event and additional support from our partner, the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, as well as government and foundation grants, and the community.

This year the Arts Council has funded $17,000 in Artists in Schools grants with 21 projects reaching thousands of students in 10 schools and programs.
