Alabama Institute for Education in the Arts- 2007

Funded in January, 2007: $35000 for 1 years
Dana funds will help AIEA train 10-12 Alabama artists to work as Teaching Artists in Alabama's Black Belt. The goals of the proposed project are to provide basic arts education opportunities to students in Black Belt schools; develop a cadre of trained local teaching artists who can effectively connect their art disciplines to the other content areas; and provide teachers in Black Belt schools with professional development opportunities so they can effectively implement Course of Study arts standards in their classrooms.
