Memorial Commission Kokomo dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. announced last week that it received a $5,000 grant from the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) and The Arts Federation (TAF).

The grant will help fund the Kokomo Little Artist Arts Education Outreach Program, a week-long event designed to provide hands-on art instruction to children in grades 3-8.

Children will have the opportunity to interact and participate in art projects with professionals such as Kokomo artist, JC Barnett III, according to the release.

“We are pleased to support the Little Artist Arts Education program’s efforts to introduce our area to youth and interest in arts education, as well as higher education in general,” said Janie Young, president of the MLK Jr. Commission, in a statement.

The Federation of Arts was able to secure this grant to the MLK Commission thanks to funding it received from the federal National Endowment for the Arts, which was part of the 2021-2022 American Rescue Plan (ARP).

Funding for the Indiana Commission on the Arts was provided by the Indiana General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Kokomo Little Artist Arts Education Outreach Program will be held October 8-15 at Indiana University Kokomo.
