Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe is pleased to announce his 2015 Arts Education Partnership Program (AEPP), which will support high quality arts education programs by providing matching funds to nonprofit organizations, community organizations, government agencies and schools across the Fourth Supervisorial District.
Supervisor Knabe’s announcement reaffirms his support of arts education for all students in L.A. County schools and concurs with the US Congress that arts education is “an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students”.
The Arts Education Partnership Program will increase and sustain well-rounded education in dance, music, theatre and the visual arts for K-12 students. A panel of experts from the various arts disciplines will judge all of the grant applications that are received.
Application deadline: December 2nd, 2014, 11pm
Applications can be accessed via the online grants system at http://lacounty.culturegrants.org/
An application workshop will take place at the Los Angeles County Arts Commission on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 1- 4PM to provide applicants with an opportunity to learn about the program, best practices in lesson planning, and get information on the Visual and Performing Arts Standards.
Awards will be announced in early summer of 2015.
