P Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education

The P. Buckley Moss Teacher Grant program provides funding for art supplies for teachers. These grants are given annually and may be up to $1000.00 each. The purpose of the Teacher Grant is to support a new or evolving program that integrates the arts into education in the school classroom setting, with a special focus on those who learn differently.

The criteria for being considered for a Teacher Grant is the development and implementation of a “hands-on” visual art learning tool.  Visual art is best described as creative works which are primarily visual in nature, such as drawing, painting, sculpting, ceramics, architecture, printmaking and photography.  Through the addition of these subjects to education programs, teachers are able to expand their “teaching tool box,” by having another method to reach out to those who learn differently. Art is being utilized in concept training as well as motor skill training. Communication is realized through art with non-verbal students. Teachers who are awarded grants have incorporated art projects into other curricula including math, science, and geography.
