The Ventura County Arts Council Arts-in-the-Classroom Mini-Grant Program, established in 2004, is to provide a source of support for the elementary schools to partner with local arts organizations and artists to bring standards based arts into K-5 classrooms. The funds may also be used to take a classroom to a Ventura County arts venue for an educational program. All funded programs must take place during the school day. No after school programs will be funded. This round of mini-grants will be awarded in the spring of 2013 to be used during the 2013-14 school year.
Ventura County Arts Council Arts-in-the-Classroom Mini-Grants are available to Ventura County elementary school K-5 classrooms that partner with a Ventura County artist or arts organization. All programs must adhere to the guiding principles contained in the Visual and Performing Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools, Prekindergarten Through Grade Twelve which is downloadable at http://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ss/documents/vpastandards.pdf. All arts disciplines will be considered. Only one application per school will be funded.
