Today is   



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 programs and services of the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester are made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
