Arts in Education Spring Grant Application
Please note that Spring Arts in Education grant applications are due by Friday, February 4, 2011 via email or snail mail.
Seamark Community Arts provides scholarship funding and grants for Deer Isle students and teachers. Our scholarship programs include two $500 Arts in Education grants per year to Deer Isle-Stonington teachers for professional development and/or special classroom projects in the arts (Fall and Spring), a $250 annual contribution to the Learning in Communities (LINC) mentorship program which connects island high school students with local artists for one-on-one study, and a $250 scholarship to a graduating high school senior pursuing a degree in the arts. Addtionally, Seamark raises money to fund scholarships for students of all ages who are interested in attending our summer and/or winter art workshops, but may not be able to afford the fees.
Our most recent Arts in Education Grant was awarded in Spring of 2010 to the Deer Isle-Stonington Elementary School (DISES) Responsive Classroom Committee to fund an end-of-the-schoolyear all-school event. The event was a contra dance for students and faculty including workshops in contra dancing in the weeks leading up to the event.
Seamark's 2010 Graduating Senior Scholarship was awarded to Deer Isle-Stonington High School student Haviland Mari Hawkins of Sedgwick, Maine. Mari is studying fine arts at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
Seamark raises money for its scholarship programs through private donations and during our annual Men Who Cook Benefit Dinner.
