Summer Schools in the Arts supports rigorous, challenging summer arts education programs that enable children and youth to acquire knowledge and skills in the arts as well as gain lifelong interests in the arts and culture.
A summer school in the arts is one that:
? Provides summer instruction in one or more arts disciplines.
? Offers a comprehensive curriculum where participants actively create and/or perform as well as respond to the arts.
? Culminates in public performances, exhibitions, or other demonstrations of the participants? achievements in the arts.
? Measures the extent to which students gain knowledge and skills according to national, state, or local arts education standards through pre- and post-assessment tests.
? Offers instruction to the same group of students over a minimum of 90 contact hours.
? May provide free or subsidized tuition for students of limited financial resources.
? Serves children and youth generally between the ages of 5 and 18.
As part of this program, grantees will be required to participate in an evaluation and assessment training workshop. Each organization will send at least one person ? either the project director or evaluator ? to attend a one-day session in Washington, DC.
Organizations are limited to one Statement of Interest and, if invited, one application.
An organization may submit only one application on its own behalf (including a Statement of Interest under this program) for FY 2006 funding under either this Summer Schools in the Arts program or the Arts Endowment?s other funding opportunities including Grants for Arts Projects. For example, an organization that submits a Statement of Interest in response to this announcement (whether or not it results in an invitation to apply), may not apply to the Arts Endowment under the Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth category (June 13, 2005, deadline) or the Access to Artistic Excellence category (March 14 or August 15, 2005, deadlines).
