The Madison Arts Council works with Madison educators each year and give out grants to help with the costs.
The Madison Arts Council would like to congratulate the 2012 teacher grant recipients. We are giving almost $2,000 dollars to teachers of Madison schools.
- Courtney Hooper with the Liberty Middle School Drama Department
- Kristy Newsome with the West Madison/Heritage Elementary School Music Department
- Sage Murine with the Columbia/Rainbow Elementary School Art Department
- Sarah Baker with the Liberty Middle School Art Department
The money that the Madison Arts Council will be giving to the teachers will go to help get costumes on the racks and students working with clay in Liberty Middle School. The grants will also be bringing new instruments to two Madison City Elementary Schools. Finally, we are happy that special needs students will have the tools they need to work on their motor skills while creating art.
2012 MAC President, Beth Pierce, is happy that Madison Arts Council can provide these grants to our educators. “Many times these teachers reach into their own pockets to supplement the students’ experience. These grants are designed to prevent that while building a base of classroom supplies.”
