50 American Art grants to help fund your CIYL show

US art grants

Many of our featured artists have applied and received grants to cover the expenses of their Colour in Your Life show. You may like to see if any of the grants below would help you.

Please let us know if you are going to apply for a grant to cover the costs, as we can help supply you information and documents to include in your grant application.

Sue and Jo both received grants to cover their show

Sue Lederhose: RADF, Regional Arts Development Fund, covered myself and three others from my region.

Jo Rankin: My local council gave me a grant and my creative community also helped with funding. The rest was from our savings. It was a great experience and the investment has proved to be well worth while taking the plunge.
