The Public Art Grant for Baltimore City Schools awards up to $5,000 for 2-4 Baltimore City Public Schools who implement an outcome based art project that will have a long- term educational impact on their students and the surrounding community.
Starting in 2014, AED has offered project based funds to our partner Baltimore City Public Schools providing teachers an avenue to use the arts as a source of community building, healing, and understanding. We know in our hearts – backed up by hard evidence – that arts education dramatically increases student, parent and teacher engagement, while improving student attendance, participation, engagement, and reading proficiency.
It helps students:
• Connect to the larger world, improving community cohesion;
• Learn more and score higher on standardized tests;
• Experience more community and family involvement globally.
HOW TO APPLY:
A Baltimore City Public School teacher who will be the lead coordinator for the project applies online with a project concept, proposed artist partner/ provider, budget and timeline—including at least one community outreach day and unveiling event.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of community members and AED partners.
