We want to invest in arts experiences for students
Without even realizing it, students who participate in the arts are solving problems!
Both researchers and educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities. Students tell us that art is fun — an activity they enjoy.
That’s why each winter we’ve offered an arts enhancement grant opportunity, called Art Dekko. However, we’ve decided to pause Art Dekko for the time being as we consider ways to make the process better for grantseekers. We’ll have more information to share this fall.
If you have questions or ideas for how to make our arts funding even better, we’d love to hear them.
