Art Feeds believes all children are imaginative, curious, creative, innovative and our greatest resource. To fuel these valuable skills, Art Feeds implements creative and expressive programming in partnership with schools and children’s organizations.

Art Feeds Community Assist is designed to provide free programming for schools that lack the financial resources to purchase Art Feeds training and curriculum outright. Art Feeds Community Assist will give the school or organization an opportunity to receive training, curriculum and supplies to implement the lessons. Art Feeds Community Assist will be announced annually each January. The amount of programming awarded is contingent upon annual fundraisers and grants received by Art Feeds. This application allows our selection committee to discern the need and compatibility of the school or children’s organizations that wish to receive programming. The application is open year round, but the application deadline is 12:00 am CST December 14th, 2018. If applicants are chosen for phase 2 of the process, the applicant will be asked to participate in an interview first week in December. Selections will be announced in January. All schools or organizations will be notified in late January. All recipients of Art Feeds Community Assist will receive their programming of choice in the 2019-2020 school year. 

Scoring: To assess initial scoring, we’ve developed a scoring protocol that ranks each school or org by criteria. Each criteria will be scored 1 through 5 for a total potential score of 15. Each score is based on the following definition:

1= Does not meet criteria
2= Might meet criteria
3=Meets criteria
4=Strongly meets criteria
5= Very strongly meets criteria

The three subjects are Community, Mission Alignment and Staff Investment.
