Deadline For RISCA Artists’ Grants

Paint it black. The Rhode Island State Council for the Arts (RISCA) reminds artists that the July 1 submission deadline for two of its programs approaches. The process can seem overwhelming (nobody becomes an artist because they love paperwork) but there is online support available for applicants. Learn about the RISCA grant program here. Opportunities for artists are:

General operating support for artists:

This program provides grants of $6,000 for each of three consecutive years (total of $18,000) for three artists to work toward large, specific, self-identified goals in their art practice. This funding is unrestricted, meaning artists can use the funds to support their goals however they need.

Rhode Island teaching artist roster:

This is a directory of teaching artists who have been approved by public panels to work in educational settings. The State’s Arts Council has endorsed the teaching artists’ skills and credentials when they are added to the Roster. Educational sites and individuals use the Roster as a resource to engage an artist for an arts learning project.
