Artists in Schools Program

Apply Now for 2019.

Develop your students' love and appreciation of the arts through our funded 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.

Through this program, the City of Whitehorse actively supports the growth and development of arts in the school communities of the municipality.

All schools in the City of Whitehorse are invited to apply, 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, sculpture, performance, dance, metalwork, circus skills and children's books illustration.
