Arts Learning is a program that offers funding for projects that help lifelong learners acquire knowledge and understanding of and skills in the arts. Projects must provide participatory learning and engage learners with skilled teaching artists and high quality artistic experiences.
First time applicants to this program are strongly encouraged to call the program officer prior to beginning an application, after first reviewing the Program Overview and Application Instructions.
The applicant may request up to 90 percent of the project costs in combined support from the Minnesota State Arts Board and one or more of the state's regional arts councils; a 10 percent match is required.
Applicants who are new to the Arts Learning program may want to view an online presentation that gives a more detailed overview of the program. The presentation is available in two formats: MS Powerpoint (with audio) or PDF (without audio). Be aware that the MS Powerpoint takes up to 30 seconds to open.
