Deadline nears for artists in schools, communities
PIERRE -- Artists are reminded that the deadline to apply to the South Dakota Arts Council's Artists in Schools and Communities (AISC) and Touring Arts programs is Sunday.
The Artists in Schools and Communities program provides intensive, hands-on training in all arts disciplines to students of all ages across the state by providing funds to schools and nonprofit organizations that bring in groups and individuals for week-long artist residencies. The artists are responsible for developing their residency lesson plans. Residencies are coordinated through the South Dakota Arts Council office as part of the Arts in Education program.
Artists interested in applying for the Artists in Schools and Communities or Touring Arts programs must apply online through the SDAC's e-grants system. Hard copies of the applications will not be accepted.
