The Arts in Education (AiE) program has been bridging Arts and Education for over a decade and continues to evolve and increase its impact in the schools.

The Arts in Education Program is the Arts Council’s initiative to support the integration of Arts into the education curricula throughout Anne Arundel County.  Included in the Arts in Education Program are:
  • The Teachers Institute
  • The Arts in Education Showcase
  • The AiE Auditorium & Residency Grants

The Teachers Institute consists of two, half-day workshops with a featured guest speaker emphasizing the benefits of arts-integrated teaching methods. The workshops are fun and include hands-on activities and engaged learning.

The Arts in Education Showcases are short performances by Artists with educational programs, usually performed for an audience of students, PTA/PTO members, faculty, and staff.

Auditorium & Residency Grants assist schools and PTO/PTA groups in presenting quality performances and residencies for students in dance, history, music, theatre, and arts-related or integrated projects. These two grants are open to all Anne Arundel County schools, private and public. AiE Residency and Auditorium Grants are available from the Arts Council to assist with programming expenses.

Arts in Education Grants

The Arts in Education Program invites all public and private schools in Anne Arundel County to apply for no more than two (2) grants per school year (i.e. one of each grant or 2 residency grants or 2 auditorium grants). These grants are used to fund artistically driven educational programs, in-person or virtually. Funding is limited to residencies or performances by artists listed on the following approved artist rosters: ACAAC, Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC), Artivate, or Young Audiences Arts For Learning, Maryland. All applications will be reviewed by the ACAAC Arts in Education Committee and funding for as many programs as possible will be approved based upon our annual program budget; preference is given to Title I schools. It is the responsibility of the applicant to book the artists and secure any additional funding needed. All applications must be completed in full, along with the required proposal from the artist or the artist’s representative to be considered. ACAAC grants received through the Arts in Education Program should be acknowledged in the school’s newsletter, crediting the ACAAC, the MSAC, City of Annapolis, and Anne Arundel County. Please review the grant guidelines below.
