Youth Art Outreach Grants for Area Art Teachers

S.C.C.C. Youth Art Outreach Grants.

At least two $500 grants to promote fine arts knowledge and practice are awarded.  Fundraising and donations can increase the number of awards.  All Springfield elementary and high school art teachers may apply to fund their projects.  Grants may be used for, but are not limited to:

  • promoting the understanding of an artist's work or an art genre.
  • improving the school building environment with an art project executed by the students.
  • learning about the Springfield community and sharing the information through art projects which culminate in an art show.
  • teaching new art techniques and ways to incorporate them into mixed media art projects.
  • reclaiming and re-purposing non-traditional items into art creations.
