Congratulations to Juline Neal, Art Teacher at DC Reeves Elementary in Ponchatoula, Louisiana!  Ms. Neal is the 2021 recipient of the Maya Levy Art Education Grant!  She will use the funds to purchase a 3-D printer to help "bring objects out of the computer screen and into the hands of students for inspection" during her lessons.  Approximately 600 students at DC Reeves will benefit from the grant funds.  

The Maya Levy Art Education Grant is funded by the Hammond Regional Arts Center to support the efforts of art educators in southeast Louisiana public schools.  Faculty from public schools in Tangipahoa, St. Tammany, St. Helena, Livingston and Washington Parishes that serve students in any grade levels from Pre-K through 12th grade are invited to apply for the funding.  Grant applications should prove a need for funding, as well as artistic merit and benefit to students in one or more of the following disciplines: visual arts, performing arts, music, dance, theater, literary arts or culinary arts.
