Welcome to the Artists in Schools website! This grant funds arts and cultural projects for Manitoba students, Kindergarten to grade 12, delivered by professional artists.
“This project reinforced for me what young kids are capable of when given the time, teaching, and equipment. It taught me that I have a huge desire to learn more about sound and video art personally for my own practice. I know that my own life-long learning in regards to my art practice can only deepen my teaching in a public school.”
—Barb Bottle, Margaret Park School, 2018-2019 project with Kayla Jeanson, Joel Mireau, and Leah Decter
“The students came ‘out of their shells’. Students who are typically quite shy were excited to participate.”
—Kristen Harley, Domain School, 2019 project with Ardyth Johnson
“[The students] are having outrageous fun while engaging in valuable learning experiences in dram, performance, personal expression, creativity, literature, visual arts and theatre… The benefits to the students are undeniable and almost immeasurable.”
—Steve Smith, Centennial School, 2016 project with Carrie Costello
