Through a grant renewal process Harney Education Service District (Harney ESD) recently gained approval for another $70,000 in funding. Harney ESD, partnering with Harney County schools, Kids Club of Harney County and the Arts in Education Foundation, will help to implement the grant.

The overall purpose of the Studio to School program is to explore and support the creation of sustainable and replicable models for delivering arts education opportunities for Oregon’s school children, and to increase the expertise of in-school and community-based arts organizations to work together as effective arts educators. Harney County was chosen from a pool of 53 applicants.   Last year the program funded several children’s camps including a Harney County Art Camp and Missoula Children's Theater as well as art based field trips for Harney County students to see the opera or experience other artistic avenues.   The Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation has graciously given $69,000 to this project and the Ward Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation has donated $1000.

Harney ESD and the students in its component schools appreciate the opportunity this funding provides to enhance the educational experience in our communities.
