The Artists-in-Education (AiE) program, was initiated in 1986 under the Community Arts Development Program by the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) to assist schools in booking artists (performing, literary, visual artists) throughout the state who would bring new and additional arts programming into the schools. This very successful program continues to support Maryland artists, teachers and children by providing funding for artist residencies and school assembly programs. AiE financial support is offered through both MSAC and locally through HCCAB.
HCCAB grants $3,000 to this program every year. Funding must be requested by submitting an AiE Grant Application for each arts presentation. Funds are dispensed on a first-come, first-served basis. AiE grant forms are available by contacting the HCCAB office.
