Picasso Project’s 2021 Arts Education Grant for Teachers – Dec 31
When children have access to arts in school, they become creative thinkers and better students. Since its inception in 2002, the Picasso Project has provided over 47,600 children access to innovative arts projects by providing grants to their schools. The Picasso Project awards grants to Philadelphia public schools annually to support projects in creative, performing and digital arts. The goal of the program is to improve the quality of arts programs at under-resourced schools, improve school climate by giving kids an outlet to work together on projects, and spark student interest by integrating arts with core academic subjects. At the same time, students and teachers at Picasso Project schools use their projects to advocate for funding for school arts programs at both the local and state level so future generations of students can express themselves through art at school.
PCCY offers two separate Picasso Project grant models:
- The Picasso Project Teacher-Based Grant provides up to $2,500 for 6 months to support innovative teacher-driven arts projects. Awarded to approximately 15 schools annually.
- The Picasso Project School-Based Grant provides $10,000 per year for up to three years to support the development of strong and sustainable arts programs, which integrate the arts school-wide. Awarded to 3 new schools annually.
Deadline to apply is December 31, 2020.
