Margaret Clark Art Grants

Every year, the MCAEEF (Margaret Clark Art Education Enrichment Fund) Committee awards grants of up to $2000 to non-profit organizations and schools to support art education activities, as described below:

ART IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS PROJECT:  MCAEEF awards grants for art-related programs and projects to be used in the classroom, grades K-12, in the Redlands Unified School District. Grade levels considered and amounts for grants may vary from year to year.  MCAEEF has funded successful after-school programs in elementary schools throughout the district as well as community youth arts programs.

SCHOLARSHIPS, AWARDS AND GRANTS TO AREA HIGH SCHOOL ART STUDENTSThe Redlands area high school art teachers determine the recipients of various scholarships and awards given by RAA to outstanding  art students each school year (e.g.  Chepulechi).  “Art is cool.”

GRANTS  TO INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS:  MCAEEF may award grants to an individual or group who proposes an activity, series of activities or projects that will support and enrich the art education of area students.  Proposed projects must align with the overall RAA Art Education Program goals.

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN REDLANDS ART  ASSOCIATION CLASSES:  MCAEEF provides scholarships to individuals enrolled in classes offered at the RAA gallery.  The Redlands Art Association Adult and Youth Education committee handles all scholarship requests and disbursements.

GRANTS FOR RAA PROJECTS:  The MCAEEF committee may approve and fund additional art education projects and supplies in support of RAA Art Education Programs.

 The best time to apply is the beginning of the school year when funds are being allocated for the school year.  Questions may be directed to Redlands Art Association.
