Arts in Education

The Arts in Education program has been bridging Arts and Education for the past 12 years and continues to evolve and increase its impact in the schools. In 2013 we incorporated an evening showcase at the Board of Education and funded over $50,000 in Residency and Auditorium Grants in 2013.

The Arts in Education (AiE) program is the Arts Council’s initiative to support the integration of Arts in Education throughout Anne Arundel County.  AiE includes the following programs;

The Teachers Institute

The Arts in Education Showcase

The AiE Residency & Auditorium Grants

The Teachers Institute is usually a one day, weekend workshop with a featured guest speaker and workshops emphasizing the benefits of integrating the arts into traditional teaching methods. The workshops are fun and often include hands activities and active learning.   If you are an educator, join our mailing list to receive more information.

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. IMG_9365

Residency & Auditorium Grants assists 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 registered schools, private and public, in Anne Arundel County.  AiE Residency and Auditorium Grants are available from the Arts Council to assist with programming expenses.
