Students in Justine Locke’s second grade class at Chase Lake Elementary got to learn pottery techniques from community artist, Julie Perrine, in order to create textured knee bowls.

Chase Lake Elementary Teacher Justine Locke received one of 28 Art Instruction Grants, totaling $27,000, recently awarded to the Edmonds Arts Festival to educators and guest artists throughout the district.

$1,500 was the maximum award with requests ranging from $39 to the full amount. Proposals were evaluated to determine if they met criteria listed in the application.

Grant applications will again be available on October 1, 2020 at www.edmondsartsfestival.com/apply. School staff members, area artists, and parents working with students at schools within the Edmonds School District boundaries are among those encouraged to apply.

Congratulations to the following educators who received this year’s grants, enabling them to enhance quality art instruction in classrooms or to purchase equipment or materials to supplement existing visual art programs.

Students will be able to carve wood with whittling tools, create a Chihuly inspired sculpture, draw body and facial expressions, create ceramics and knit. These are some of the many artistic projects supported by through the 2020 grants.
