COCA’s Arts Education Grant aims to remove financial barriers for arts educators to access resources and arts experiences, classroom materials and equipment, and arts-specific professional development opportunities for their continuing education.

This grant supports creative instructional approaches by funding arts related projects not supported by school budgets. This program is not intended to supplant other funding sources. Its purpose is to support arts teachers who have innovative ideas for enhancing their curriculum or allowing students access to supplemental learning experiences in and through the arts.

For more information and grant guidelines, click here or email Arts Education Manager, Sahara Lyon, at sahara@tallahasseearts.org.
