Arts Education Resources Initiative

Arts Education Resources Initiative was initially funded with a grant from Washington Mutual in order to identify and encourage use of proven arts education practices. The project’s website and print materials offer research-based ideas and support for effective practices, methods for improving teaching capacity, as well as specific action agendas that principals, teachers, parents, school districts, and community arts providers can use to work toward high quality arts education for all students.

First Step

First Step grants are intended to support newer and/or smaller arts education partnerships. Like the Community Consortia, successful First Step partnerships have goals related to long-term impacts rather than short-term projects. But these partnerships are likely to be in earlier stages of development, with a narrower focus and/or a smaller group of participants.

Community Consortia

Community Consortia grants assist community arts and education partners in building and sustaining arts education in their local schools. Consortium programs often involve multiple arts organizations or agencies, teaching artists, schools and/or districts, parents, and other community partners. Funded consortia have received ongoing support through grantee trainings, such as workshops on evaluation and sustainable arts education, and other professional development opportunities.

Public Artist Roster

The Public Artist Roster is a juried list of artists who work with Art in Public Places. Every two years, new artists are added to the roster through a competitive process.

State Art Collection

The State Art Collection includes 4,500 artworks that represent more than 30 years of acquisitions. The collection contains a variety of media and a broad diversity of contemporary artistic production from many of Washington State’s notable artists, as well as other artists nationwide.

½ of 1% for Art

½ of 1% for Art funds are generated by new construction projects in state agencies, community colleges, universities, and public schools. Local committees representing project sites make all final artwork selection decisions.

Arts Participation Initiative

Arts Participation Initiative funds nonprofit organizations to enhance cultural participation in ethnic, disabled, rural, and low-income communities throughout Washington.

Cooperative Partnerships

Cooperative Partnerships provide statewide services. Current partners include Artist Trust, Arts Northwest, Centrum, and the Washington State Arts Alliance Foundation.

Institutional Support

Institutional Support provides Washington's largest arts organizations ( those with budgets over $528,000) with operating grants ranging from $9,000 to $47,000. This program is currently not open to new applicants.

Organizational Support

Organizational Support funds mid-range arts organizations – those with a previous year cash income of at least $79,000. In 2006, grants ranging from $2,000 to $6,000 were awarded to 90 organizations. Applications for this biennial program are not available again until 2009.

Project Support

Project Support funds small arts organizations and community service groups through matching grants for specific arts events targeted to a general public audience. Project grants typically range from $500 to $2,000. There are two deadlines each year.

Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement

The Twining Humber Award offers a $10,000 award annually to a female, visual artist, over the age of 60 from Washington State. Eligible artists must be nominated and a selection panel of artists and arts professionals will select the recipients. Nomination forms are available each year in November.

Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowship

The Fellowship Program awards $7,500 to practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and demonstrated ability. The Fellowship is a merit based, not a project based award. Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowships are awarded in two-year cycles. Emerging Fields & Cross-Disciplinary Arts, Performing Arts, Visual Arts and Traditional & Folk Arts are awarded in even-numbered years (2008). Music Arts, Media Arts, Literary Arts and Craft Arts are awarded in odd-numbered years (2009). A selection panel of three artists and arts professionals in each discipline select the Fellowship recipients. Fellowship applications are available early April.

GAP (Grants for Artist Projects) Program

The GAP Program provides support for artist-generated projects, which can include (but are not limited to) the development, completion or presentation of new work. GAP awards are open to artists of all disciplines and offer a maximum of $1,500 for projects. An inter-disciplinary panel of artists and arts professionals selected from around Washington State select GAP recipients. GAP applications are available early December.
