Artists in the Classroom Grants Deadline

ArtStarts in Schools is encouraging artists to collaborate with a teacher on a creative project to inspire young people to explore the arts and learn. 

Artists in the Classroom (AIC) grants of up to $3,500 for small to medium scale projects and grants of up to $10,000 for large scale projects are available. AIC grants can fund up to 70% of total project costs and can only cover eligible expenses. The remaining 30% of costs, including ineligible expenses, must be covered by other sources secured by the applicant including contributions from the school district, school, PAC, private sponsors and individual donations.

AIC grants support projects in schools across BC that demonstrate artistic excellence, high levels of student engagement, strong curricular connections, and an active partnership between an educator and a professional artist.


Kindergarten to Grade 12 educators, school administrators and PAC Representatives in British Columbia are eligible to apply for this grant.
