The Madison Arts Commission, as part of its mission to make the arts accessible to all of Madison’s citizens, is especially committed to making arts education possible for every child. Developing the arts and integrating them more fully into the lives of Madison communities is at the heart of the ArtWORKS! grant program. The goal of the grant is to support partnerships between individual artists or arts organizations and community groups for after-school arts based activities. This arts-based education should take place on a regularly scheduled basis, should serve a diverse, under-served student population composed of elementary and middle-school aged children, and should occur during non-school hours.
