Education through the Arts provides matching funds for partnerships between schools and teaching artists and/or cultural organizations. The projects must:

  • include both arts and non-arts subjects;
  • address the New York State Learning Standards;
  • be collaboratively designed;
  • occur during the school day.

One or two rounds of funding are conducted each year (depending upon resources available). Grant requests are reviewed by a local peer group panel convened especially for this purpose. Each panel is made up of educators, artists, arts organization representatives, and administrators.

For more information, please call (585) 473-4000.

The Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
