Artists in the Schools Applications Now Open

The Artists in the Schools (AITS) program for State of Hawai‘i Department of Education (DOE) schools, grades K-12, is currently open for school applications. All Hawai‘i public and charter schools are eligible to apply. The deadline is Monday, April 20, 2020. The deadline has been extended to May 31, 2020.

About AITS

AITS arts residency grants provide engaging, creative and fun learning experiences based on the Fine Arts standards for all grade levels, through residencies with qualified trained teaching artists from the Artistic Teaching Partners (ATP) Roster. Many of these teaching artists integrate their art form with other core curriculum areas, such as language arts, math, social studies, and science, meeting both Fine Arts and other core standards.
