The N.C. Arts Council’s grants are one of the many ways they invest in sustaining and advancing the diverse and widespread network of arts organizations and artists. Davie County Schools receives a Grassroots Arts grant which provides per capita-based funding for arts programming to all 100 counties across North Carolina ensuring opportunities for citizens to experience the arts in their own communities. Grassroots funds have been used for resident artists to work side by side with Davie County Arts teachers in all disciplines. Some of the student art work and performances will be displayed at the Arts Smart Festival.
