Arts In Education
The Ames Community Arts Council's Arts in Education program supports arts education opportunities that expand art programs outside the regular classroom.
The Council aims to foster an environment where schools and local civic or community organizations work collaboratively to develop educational art experiences for high school and college students who live in the Ames area. Empowering these students to mentor others and to explore any of the arts outside of regular class assignments.
The Council is particularly interested in encouraging service learning through the arts and the use of art as tools to teach other core subjects, such as reading, writing, history, math, science, and social studies.
The Council invites applications for financial support for activities that address the Arts in Education program goals. Applications are accepted from individuals and groups in February. Announcements of recipients are made at the annual Ames Community Arts Council's Arts Awards Ceremony, usually held at the end of April.
