Schools encouraged to apply for arts program by Feb. 1
Applications are being accepted until Feb. 1 from Baltimore City Public Schools for funding for arts experiences from Arts Every Day for the 2011-2012 school year.
Arts Every Day strengthens learning and student development in Baltimore City schools by making arts education and cultural experiences an integral part of curriculum. Application forms and information are available at www.artseveryday.org.
For the 2011-2012 school year, Arts Every Day will reach more students than ever before: the number of schools which will receive support is expected to double to 50, according to a release from the organization. Among the benefits that Arts Every Day schools receive are a minimum of $5 per student for arts-integration programming, regular professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators, ongoing support and guidance for school staff coordinating arts integration activities, and training and use of Arts Every Day’s nationally recognized website.
During the current school year, 25 elementary and middle schools, 800 educators, and 11,000 students are benefitting from arts education, cultural experiences, and arts integration - from teaching artists visiting the classroom and school-wide assemblies to field trips to local museums and attendance at public performances.
