Hearts for the Arts Annual Campaign 2020-2021

HFA Brochure CoverThe Barbara Ingram School for the Arts Foundation Hearts for the Arts Annual Membership Campaign (September 2020 – June 2021) directly funds the Discipline Enrichment Grant Program. Enrichment Grants make it possible for BISFA students in EVERY discipline to greatly benefit from an enhanced arts education, including:

  • Guest Artists / Master Teachers / Artists-in-Residence: Students study and perform with professional artists who practice their craft in their professions. These artists share their time, talent, knowledge, skill and experience with students as they teach.
  • Enriched Arts Curriculum: Students are offered specialized instructional experiences beyond the traditional school program.
  • Performance Opportunities*: Students participate in more than 50 performances each year, which gives them a competitive edge when auditioning for institutions of higher education or professional engagements.
  • Off-Site Learning Opportunities: Students participate in off-site field trips and tours to renowned arts venues, which greatly enhances their overall educational experience. Past trips include Kennedy Center, Disney World, Visionary Museum, National Museum of African American Art, and Museum of Women in the Arts.

The Barbara Ingram School for the Arts Foundation believes students should be provided the best opportunities to discover and develop their artistic talents and grow as artists. We believe that such growth is rooted in a strong academic foundation along with partnerships with businesses and the arts community. In advance, thank you for your membership.

*While we are hopeful that in-person performances will return during the school year, the status is uncertain at this time with the current COVID restrictions. BISFA plans to stream various discipline performances and we will share more information as they are scheduled.
