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:
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.
The 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). Watch Art is cool on Vimeo to find out more.
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.
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.
The MCAEEF committee may approve and fund additional art education projects and supplies in support of RAA Art Education Programs. Watch RAA Film 1 on Vimeo to find out more.
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.
