The Dorothy Cunningham Art Grant was created in honor of a long-time member who was also a teacher in the San Leandro School District. It was her wish to promote visual art to the children of San Leandro. SLAA embraces that wish and, as funds are available, we give grants to Art Teachers for supplies or equipment. We awarded three $300 grants in 2019.
This grant award program is offered to art teachers in the San Leandro School District who compete through written proposal. The program supports a new, or ongoing, art project that is carried out with students in any grade(s). It is also used by the teachers to purchase art supplies for general use.
