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
“My two most reluctant readers/writers were engaged and enthusiastic about this project.”
—H. Valder, École Rivière Rouge, 2019 project with Karin Adams
“As students put it, the most rewarding part of working with Joan was the way she connected art to their life. It wasn’t just art for art’s sake – for the sake of something beautiful – but rather an attempt to get students to observe and think about their life, their environment and their culture.”
—Kathy Waldner, Decker Colony School, 2018-2019 project with Joan Trott
