The purpose of this grant proposal is to secure funding for fine arts materials including; but not limited to, puppets, theatre dress up, music instruments and dancing accessories, and materials such as paint, markers, crayons, and sculpting clay. These materials ensure that every classroom has what is needed for all children to engage in the arts in order to express creativity and further skills various developmental areas. The materials that will be purchased with the funding will help create a rich learning environment where children can express themselves creatively while building other key development factors including areas such as social-emotional, fine and gross motor, and cognitive development. The development of the children in the program will be observed in relation to the skills that are built through interaction in the fine arts and their progression of abilities will be recorded.
