Arts Grants for Teachers

ARTS GRANTS FOR TEACHERS

Arts Grants for Teachers is a granting program for teachers in Lafayette Parish Public Schools. The program is funded by the Lafayette Parish School System and coordinated by Acadiana Center for the Arts.

The purpose of this grant program is to encourage teachers to design and develop artistically creative and innovative projects involving the visual and performing arts. These projects can help to develop understanding and appreciation of the arts, complement other arts-related activities already implemented in the schools, provide direct student involvement in the arts, develop permanent arts resources, integrate arts into other academic disciplines or to provide support for teachers to become more proficient in the arts.
