Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council Announces 
The 2017 Artists in Schools Grant Recipients

With the new year upon us, the Arts Council is pleased to announce their annual Artists in Schools grant recipients with awards given to support Pre-K through 12th grade projects in the Shoreline School District.

These projects feature professional artists working with students and teachers and take place during the academic year, with most being scheduled for late winter and spring.

Artists in Schools has been providing arts education throughout the district since 1993.

A majority of the funding for this project is made possible through the Arts Council’s annual Gala for the Arts, with additional support from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, as well as government and foundation grants, and the community.

This year, the Arts Council has funded $18,000 in Artists in Schools grants with 20 projects reaching thousands of students in 11 schools and programs.
