Artists in Education
January 01, 2006 - January 01, 2006

Program for: Individuals

Purpose: To provide project grants to allow professional artists from all artistic expressions and cultures to provide in-depth learning experiences for Ontario educators and learners, as well as to allow artists with less experience to experiment and gain experience in communities or schools. Successful applicants to the Projects in Schools category are placed on a roster for a one-year term. The roster may be used by Ontario educational institutions when planning their arts education programs. 

Eligibility: This program is open to professional artists from all artistic expressions and cultures interested in working with Ontario educators and learners on projects taking place in Ontario educational institutions. Projects may involve any educational institution recognized by the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training from Junior Kindergarten to grade 12, as well as federally-funded First Nations schools.

Note: The OAC has subsidized roster artist’s fees by approximately 82%. All schools accessing the roster must contribute a minimum of $11.25 per hour, paid directly to the artist. Artists may require additional materials. Schools are required to cover material costs and other like expenses.

Deadline Date: January 15, 2016
Grant notification letters will be mailed out four months after the application deadline.
