“The arts teach students that small differences can have large effects.” – Elliott Eisner, emeritus professor of Art and Education at Stanford University

The Arts Fund has been making a difference in our community since 1992. Through the efforts of the superintendent of schools and a private donor, The Arts Fund works to create a pool of private funding to enhance the arts curriculum of Region One. The Arts Fund supports students in their pursuit of arts experiences, brings the arts to the doors of those whose only exposure to the arts is time allotted for the arts in school, and creates bridges between schools, artists, teachers, and our community.

Our Mission

The Arts Fund strives to increase arts opportunities for all children in the six towns of the Northwest Corner of Connecticut.

Thanks to the continued annual generosity of members of our community, such as you, The Arts Fund has been able to:

Offer Grants to:

  • Sharon Scribe
  • HVRHS Music Program
  • Falls Village Children’s Theatre
  • Democracy in Action Film Project at HVRHS
  • Music on the Mountain children’s concerts
  • Arts Alive at Kent Center School
  • North Canaan Summer Arts Program
  • TriArts Sharon Playhouse

Provide Summer scholarships to 43 students from all seven Region One schools

Celebrate Fourth Grade Arts Day with over 150 Region One fourth grade students participating, held at The Hotchkiss School
