It’s that time of year again! 


Fresh Artists is pleased to announce our 14th annual grant cycle to give free art supplies to full-time art teachers in schools where 70% or more of the students qualify for Free and Reduced-price Lunches. We’ve been working all year, raising funds to provide new, quality art supply kits to fill your shelves, refresh your classroom, and make sure your students have supplies to work with at home or at school. This year we're doing something a little different to best serve all teachers, whether you're teaching in person or remotely.


This year, art teachers have the option to choose from 3 different styles of Art Kits: our traditional classpack art kits for in-person instruction; kits of individual supplies for use by students studying remotely or in school where supplies cannot be shared; and an art kit that contains a high-quality USB Document Camera and Ring Light to help you step up your Zoom game! As part of the application, each art teacher must also choose a second choice Art Kit, in case items are unavailable.  A complete list of all the Art Kits is shown below, with their contents.


Be sure to use your perfered shipping address in your application. If your school is closed or has limited hours, please list your home address. This info is never shared or used for anything other than shipping your grants. We cannont be responsible for shipping issues due to closed buildings. 

Please complete our short, competitive grant application, select your first and second choice Art Kits, and submit by Sunday, February 21st, 2021 at 10:00 PM EST.  Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Once submitted, your Art Kit choices cannot be changed.
