Ideas and Money for Expanding School Arts Programs.
This monograph lists resources and presents suggestions for raising financial support for elementary and secondary school arts programs. It is part of a series focusing on the status, problems, and prospects of art education in the United States. All monographs in the series maintain that school arts programs are basic to individual development and a sound education. The document is intended for use by school arts support groups and/or individual advocates as they urge support from school board members, community leaders, legislators, government agencies, corporations, and foundations. The document is presented in four major sections. In section I, basic information is offered on evaluating the art-related assets of a community, becoming connected with the national art education network, and using the resources listed in the monograph to their best advantage. Section II presents an annotated listing of arts education literature including government and arts councils' reports, surveys of museum education programs, local arts resources directories, and a handbook of cooperative art-related endeavors involving universities and public school systems. Section III offers tips on grantsmanship and identifies possible funding sources in five categories--local, state, federal, corporate, and foundations. The final section identifies snags frequently encountered by people attempting to develop educational programs. Also included in this section is a checklist of major steps in the educational planning process including involving key personnel, assessing resources, clarifying objectives, gathering information on other programs and resources, developing a staged action plan, providing support systems, creating an evaluation system, and keeping the community informed.
