ISCA Teacher Grants


How do you connect children living on the other side of the world in unthinkable conditions with students from Hilton Head? This video captures the moment brilliantly, as children living in Syrian Refugee Camps receive portraits of themselves created by visual arts students from Hilton Head Island High School. This Fall an ISCA Teacher Grant proudly funded $675 for the “The Memory Project” for teachers: Monique Dobbelaere, Andrea Pejeau, and Kathryn Ramseur Riley. ISCA is happy to provide proof once again, that the arts reach beyond cultural, economic, and racial barriers without prejudice.

ISCA Teacher Grants program was open to all teachers in K-12 visual arts, instrumental and vocal music, theatre, dance, and literary arts in Southern Beaufort County and was set up to fund innovative projects that raise student experience and awareness of arts education, celebrate the intrinsic value of the arts, and raise overall community awareness of the importance of arts education. In the Spring of 2015 the ISCA board decided to refocus its funding on other ISCA programs and the ISCA Teacher Grants are not available at this time.

ISCA proudly funded the following ISCA Teacher Grants to Literary, Performing, and Visual Arts teachers at private and public schools in southern Beaufort County. 

ISCA funded the following Teacher Grants in 2016:

$575 funded a multi-school collaboration  as part of participation in “The Memory Project”. 120  visiual arts students from Bluffton High school, Hilton Head Christian academy, Hilton Head Island High School and Hilton Head Prep attend a viewing of the movie He Named Me Malala. 

 

ISCA funded the following Teacher Grants in 2015:

Hilton Head Island High School: $500 was allocated for theatre teacher, Harry Culpepper, Summer Theatre Program.

$546 funded 78 Hilton Head Christian Academy, Hilton Head Prep, and home-schooled students to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company performance.

ISCA Funded the following Teacher Grants in 2014:

Hilton Head Preparatory School: $500 was allocated for music teacher, Jim Fritz to provide a professional choreographer and dance instruction for his middle school performing arts

 

ISCA is pleased to announce the following ISCA Teacher Grants for 2014;

Hilton Head Preparatory School: $500 was allocated for music teacher, Jim Fritz to provide a professional choreographer and dance instruction for his middle school performing arts students. Dance is currently not a part of the curriculum offered to the students at Hilton head Prep and ISCA feels dance is a core component to a well rounded performing arts curriculum. The students had 8 weeks of rehearsal and choreography with professional dancer, Kathleen Watkins as they prepared for their production of Seussical.

Bluffton High School: $500 was allocated for supplies and installation design from North Carolina based artist, Allsion Luce to create a permanent wall mural with AP Ceramics teacher, Tim Holsinger. The wall mural is a culmination of a 3 pronged ISCA Artist Residency and ISCA Teacher Grant.

Bluffton High School: $175 was allocated to IB Photography teacher, Dennis Vernon to print large format images of student work that will be framed and installed in the Arts Wing at Bluffton High School.

 

ISCA is pleased to announce the following ISCA Teacher Grants funded for the spring of 2013:

Bluffton Middle School – $500 contributing toward project and artist instruction for a Rain Garden Fountain. With the help of artist Amos Hummell, students construct and install on school grounds, the rain garden to collect rainwater and storm runoff into large rain barrels underground. The water matrix provides a shallow pond for planters created and maintained by the students on an ongoing basis.

McCracken Middle School – $500 contributing toward project supplies for ‘Capture This.’ With disposable digital cameras, students take photos of nature at a selected location by the teacher. The students then chose a photo and write an essay describing literary interpretation of the illustration. The project incorporates a combination of photography and literary art expression.

Hilton Head Island Middle School – $500 contributing toward new instrument and concert band music for the Stingray Band. The project enhances and builds a more successful band program for the middle school band by adding instruments to the existing limited band library and adds more challenging and cultural music material.

 

Collaboration with Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC) – $1000 contributing toward 16 weeks of art instruction to provide art education for area local children identified by NOC as an at-risk population.

 

Hilton Head Island High School – $500 contributing toward advanced Photography Equipment Project for incorporating more advanced technology and equipment specifically to emphasize the importance of shooting in the RAW/DNG/digital negative files.

 

Hilton Head Island Elementary – $500 contributing toward materials budget for ‘Poetry in Motion – When Art Meets Science – An Interactive Physics Mural.’ A project demonstrating and celebrating the relationship between art and science with an interactive permanent playground structure for children to explore the laws of force and motion.
