K-12 School Grant Applications

All schools and K-12 youth organizations that participate in the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival are eligible to apply for a grant from $200 to $2000 for a specific project to enhance art instruction and participation.  Past grants have been awarded for:

  • art supplies (paint, clay, paper)
  • art equipment (drying racks for print making, display easels)
  • tools (cameras, buckets, shovels, etc for sand castle building )
  • lectures by local artists (to pay the artist’s stipend)
  • participatory workshops (murals, tiles)
  • home-school art Instruction (for a group of homeschooling students to be taught by an artist)

This is only a partial list of eligible projects; your imagination may vary. 

Applications will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • value of the program in relation to the requested funding
  • number of children impacted
  • perceived need of the population served
  • completeness and clarity of the application

Applicants must have participated in the 2016 Luna Park Chalk Art Festival to be eligible for funding.

Applications are due by midnight on November 11, 2016. We anticipate announcing awards by Thanksgiving.

Award recipients from previous years are eligible to apply again but will only be considered if they submitted the required follow up report by the due date.

Please email treas@lunaparkchalkart.org with any questions.  Relevant answers will be shared with all applicants.
