Teaching Arts Creatively (TAC) Grants
Students who have been exposed to art, who have had the opportunity to make art themselves, cultivate important skills for learning. The arts are a powerful multiplier for learning in general.
Each fall, Jefferson County schools teachers may request grant money from AHA! to finance special projects they want to do in their classrooms. Grant requests are reviewed by AHA! Board members, and grants up to $500 are distributed. The money may be used to bring artists into the classroom, for supplies for a special art project or for musical instruments that will be used for years to come.
AHA! has also helped to finance theater productions and trips for choral competitions. During the spring when the school-year projects are completed, AHA members enjoy visiting the teachers and their projects, performances, or culminating activities. Our dream is to introduce and support a fully arts-integrated curriculum into our schools.
