WEST POINT-CLAY COUNTY ARTS COUNCIL
AWARDS NORMAN ARMSTRONG ARTS IN EDUCATION GRANTS
Three Norman Armstrong Arts in Education Grants were awarded this week to teachers at Eastside, 5th Street and Central schools. More than 500 students will directly benefit from the programs implemented at the schools.
Named for Norman Armstrong, one of West Point’s most beloved arts advocates, the Arts in Education Grant Program is available to teachers in area public and private schools. “Norman ate, slept, and dreamed about the arts. It was his passion, and he would be so pleased to know our children are having arts experiences integrated into their regular curriculum,” commented Lucile Armstrong, Norman’s widow.
Fifth St. teacher Jacqueline Bergstrom will use the grant funds to implement art integrated into a unit on Daniel Defoe’s “Robinson Crusoe.” Her students will be able to tap their creative talents as they learn watercolor techniques and produce artworks illustrating the story.
Grant funds at Eastside will enable Kindergarten teacher Michelle McKinney to introduce Vincent van Gogh’s unique painting style using his “Sunflowers” painting for reference. Students will also learn about Navajo pottery and incorporate both artistic styles in a showing of the finished projects to the public.
Central School art students will be studying about Abstract Expressionism and then produce their own paintings on canvas. The teacher for this lucky group is Cindy Neely.
“Teachers in both public and private schools may apply for mini-grants to support art experiences in the visual arts, music, drama, dance or creative writing," Julie Gray said. According to Gray, president of the Arts Council, the program is designed to facilitate and advance the arts as an integral component of the education and experience of K-12 students in West Point and Clay County.
The Norman Armstrong Arts in Education grant program is administered by the West Point/Clay County Arts Council. Offered yearly in the fall semester, applications can be for supplies, teaching materials or equipment exclusive to the arts, as well as for tickets or admission to arts programs, teacher training workshops in arts education, or other activities that will enhance enjoyment and experience of the arts for students.
All schools, grades K-12, both public and private in West Point and Clay County are eligible for the grants, and all teachers in all subjects may apply, although fine arts teachers are especially encouraged to do so. Priority will be given to schools which demonstrate the most need and which have not already received funding from other sources.
Grant applications can be requested by contacting Kathy Dyess at 494-5678.
