TIP stands for “Teacher Initiated Program.”

It is a matching grant through the Kentucky Arts Council that provides funds for professional artists to work with teachers and students in all of the art forms.  The artist and teacher work together to create a unit that is specific to the school’s needs.  Then, a panel scores the grants and those that are considered proficient are funded.  Please check out the Kentucky Arts Council site for more information if you are a teacher in Kentucky.  This grant is a wonderful opportunity for all students.
