National Endowment For The Arts


: Children, Youth & Families


The Endowment’s Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth program provides funds for projects that help children and youth acquire knowledge and understanding of and skills in the arts. Funded projects must provide participatory learning and engage students with skilled artists, teachers, and “excellent” art. Funded projects apply national or state arts education standards. All projects submitted must include experience, study, performance, and assessment. Under the experience category, students and their teachers should have the chance to experience exemplary works of art in live form, where possible. In the study category, students will study works of art under the guidance of teachers, teaching artists, and cultural organizations. Where appropriate, the study component should include the acquisition of skills relevant to practicing the art form. In the performance category, projects should have students creating their own art. In the case of literature, the primary creative activities will be writing and/or recitation. Students should be assessed according to national or state arts education standards. School-based projects are for children and youth in grades K-12 and should be directly connected to the school curriculum and instructional program. Activities may take place in or outside of the school building at any time of day. Community-based projects are for children and youth ages 5 to 18. Activities must occur outside of the regular school day and may take place in a variety of settings. Additional information, including contacts for specific media, is available on the Web site.
