2012 Grant Recipients

We are gave 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

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.
