About this grant
This grant to the Flint Institute of Arts will help build the Art School Endowment fund. The endowment provides general operating support for the art school, one of the largest museum art schools in the nation. The Art School has an annual enrollment of about 1,500 students and offers studio instruction in drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics, glass mosaic, fiber, and metal sculpture, with scholarships available to those needing financial assistance. The school serves another 4,000 children and adults each year through summer camps for youth, free family activities, and a pre-college portfolio development program for high school students interested in pursuing a college education in the arts. The goal is to build the art school endowment to sustain its operations in perpetuity.
