Art instruction grants available for local schools

Have an idea for enriching art education within Edmonds School District boundaries? Applications are now available for art instruction grants, funded by the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation.

You can apply at www.edmondsartsfestival.com/apply. All schools within Edmonds School District boundaries are eligible. The purpose of the grants is to create visual arts education opportunities for students, and may be applied for by anyone whose proposed project, equipment, or materials will directly benefit visual arts education for District students. Applications must be submitted by Nov.r 1, 2019; notice of grant status will be provided in early December.

The Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation gives more than $80,000 annually for art scholarships, educational grants to schools, and community grants to area non-profits. In addition, it has given more than $1 million for public art installations and special projects throughout Edmonds.

All profit from the annual Edmonds Arts Festival in June goes toward funding of the Foundation’s programs. Learn more at www.eaffoundation.org
