The Council for Art Advocacy

The NAMTA Council for Art Advocacy’s mission is to sustain, strengthen and support the art material industry through advocacy, awareness, and increased funding of art and art education. In the spirit of this mission, the Council will award grants annually to worthy recipients.

NAMTA Launches New Grant Program
The NAMTA Council for Art Advocacy provides grants in the following categories:

  1. The development of art education courses, programs or curricula
  2. Any program that promotes and supports the visual and creative arts

This program represents a wonderful opportunity for you to reach out to your customers who would qualify and to let them know that your association – NAMTA – has this program available for them.

Check back soon for Grant Applications for 2013.
