Artists in Schools Program

The Artists in Schools Program enables local schools to employ a professional artist to work on exciting art projects within the school. Invitations are sent to all schools, with subjects selected for funding to be completed within the following financial year. The program provides funding for arts projects in all areas including visual, performing, music, literature and design.

Council funds the full cost of hiring the artist. However, schools are responsible for funding the materials and any other costs associated with their chosen projects. Past projects have included felt-making, ceramic and mosaic works, performance and dance, circus skills and children's books illustration.
