The Arts Council of Anne Arundel County’s annual Arts in Education (AiE) Teaching Artist Directory was designed to put the world of the arts at the fingertips of program directors as they apply for their school's AiE Residency and Auditorium Grants. This directory is a great resource for all schools throughout Anne Arundel County to see the variety of vibrant teaching artists from the visual, performing, historic, and literary arts, as well as community groups looking for quality arts programming. If you would like to be included in our 2023-2024 AiE Teaching Artist Directory, please review the guidelines HERE before submitting an application.

The Arts Council of Anne Arundel County’s Arts in Education program has supported the integration of the arts into educational curricula in our schools for over a decade, and its impact continues to grow. Our grants enable schools and PTO/PTA groups to present quality performances and residencies for students in dance, history, music, theatre and arts-related or arts-integrated projects.

Arts in Education grants are open to all public and private accredited K-12 schools in Anne Arundel County. Schools may apply for up to two grants per school year. We try to fund as many programs as possible, based upon available funding; preference is given to Title I schools.

Please note that we are now using the same application form for both Auditorium and Residency Arts in Education Grants. The program guidance is available here.

Grant applications can be completed jointly by multiple staff members; click on the “Invite Collaborators” icon on the top left-hand corner of the application form.
