Artists In Schools: Arts For All Allocations
Arts for All is an invite-only grant program that brings Teaching Artists to Title I Schools in Cumberland County.
Selected Title I Schools receive $1,000 to partner with our Teaching Artists on a Residency, Assembly Performance, Virtual/Online Engagement, or Workshop with students.
Residencies allow students to work with a single artist or group over the course of several days, creating a consistent relationship with the same students each day.
Assemblies bring Teaching Artists to perform for a large group of students, encouraging interaction between classrooms or even throughout grade levels!
ONLINE | VIRTUAL ENGAGEMENTS
Teaching Artists engage through various digital platforms to offer instructional time for schools using a digital learning environment with minimal physical interaction.
Workshops may engage a single class or multiple classes in a single grade level, similar to an Artist Residency but generally shorter in duration.
“Students were able to create something that is unique and their own. The final clay projects were beautiful and the students were proud to show me their clay sun."
- Zoletta Taylor, Douglas Byrd High School
“[The Arts for All Program] gives the students a way to experience different types of programs that they may not have access to."
- Imari Smith, William H Owen Elementary School
