Here are some ideas for making your artist-in-residency grant application a=
nd program successful:
1. Ask the AZ Commision on the Arts to give you training, including showi=
ng you examples of successful proposals, and speak with people who've writt=
2. Get the parent-teacher organization to commit to matching the funds yo=
u get in grants.
3. Target the same one or two grade levels every year so all students wil=
l be effected over the years by the program.
4. Get buy-in by teachers by asking each year what sort of art experience=
d is most needed-- visual, dance, poetry, musical, etc.-- but try to touch =
all the arts over the years with some kind of rotation. And get the targete=
d grade-levels' teachers to commit to supporting the effort.
5. Coordinating the artist-in-residence program requires the commitment o=
f a staff member to oversee writing the grant and acting as liaison between=
all other parties. This person's efforts should be greatly rewarded.
