For every loss arts programs suffer, there seems to be an equal, opposing force in support of arts programs; the latest contribution was to D.C. public and charter schools’ arts initiatives, thanks to the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative(DHAHEC).

On April 3, the DHAHEC partnered with Plaza Art to announce that they will offer a limited amount of free stipends for D.C. teachers to buy art supplies from Plaza Artist Materials.

D.C. public or charter school art teachers can apply for a stipend of $150 or less. The funds are meant to help implement Visual Art lessons in the classroom.

Teachers are encouraged to apply through this on-line form.
