The ArtsEdConnect partnership of the Santa Clara County Office of Education and SVCreates is pleased to announce Arts Education grants through the generosity of the County of Santa Clara and the Warmenhoven Family Foundation.

We are pleased to announce our next grant cycle to support teachers in bringing arts experiences to their classrooms.

This year we have three options; a $500 grant that can be used for art materials, a $750 grant for an artist in residency program or funds (amount specific to project/experience) for an art project, performances, workshops, field trips or art experiences.

So get your creative juices flowing for an art project or activity that will engage and inspire your students.
