Delaware Division for the ArtsDeadline
The Division of the Arts has established three goals for Artist Residency grants: Actively engage students in the creative process with a professional artist Provide new arts knowledge and skills to classroom teachers and arts specialists Facilitate teaching opportunities for teaching artists Eligible schools may request funding for artist residencies that support visual, literary, performing or media artists working with students in the classroom under teacher supervision, or in professional development workshops with teachers. The focus of the artist’s activities should be on classroom learning or teacher workshops. A public assembly may be a component of the artist’s visit, but not the solitary purpose of the visit. In any case, the proposed arts education activity must be an integral part of the residency site’s regular standards-based curriculum or professional development plans for the organization.Eligibility
All Delaware Pre K-12 public, charter, private, and parochial schools with an established arts curriculum and staff are eligible to apply. Not-for-profit agencies incorporated in the state of Delaware that are licensed to provide services for preschool (pre-K – K) students are also eligible to apply. No more than two residency applications may be submitted by the same organization in any calendar year without the permission of the Division Director.
