    The Arts Enhanced Education Program is a competitive inter-disciplinary grant made possible through the Maryland State Arts Council. Teachers can apply individually, or as a “team.” A team should be made up of one arts discipline teacher (music, theatre or visual) and one core discipline teacher (e.g., math, science, reading, social studies). This option has been made available to encourage teachers to work together to develop new, creative project ideas. Applications are typically due the beginning of December each year with funding will be available for projects taking place between February 1 and May 31. For more information, please visit: Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council and review the “Art Enhanced Education Application” and “Art Enhanced Education Guide.”
