Calling all performers! Share your talent with the town and sign up to participate in the first annual Piedmont's Got Talent. Dance, singing, comedy, poetry, music, circus, anything goes! Show us what you love to do! CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP!
What are we looking for and what's this thing about? Piedmont Arts Fund committee members will be evaluating the auditions and are looking for a range of skills at different levels. Performers should be trained in their craft, but we want to see what you love to do. The goal is to raise community awareness of the students who are participating in the arts and to raise money to continue to fund arts in the schools. The Piedmont's Got Talent program is free - any middle or high school student living in the city of Piedmont may audition. Admission will be charged for the final show and will be used to support the arts in the Piedmont Unified School District.
Piedmont Arts Fund Grants $65,000 to Piedmont Schools
December 12, 2018
The Piedmont Arts Fund, formerly PAINTS (Promote Arts In The Schools) and CHIME and partners with PEF, presented the Piedmont Unified School Board with a check for $65,000 in grants to Piedmont Unified School District (PUSD) for the 2018-19 academic year.
The Piedmont Arts Fund relies on donations through the Piedmont Store and through special events like the Big Art Show in March to support art education in all of the schools in the Piedmont Unified School District. The grant presented supports art for K-12 students including supplies, music instruction, integrated art, lunchtime art, 2D and 3D art, ceramics, photography, graphic design, band, orchestra, acapella, choir, theater, dance, poetry, film and art books in the libraries. The breadth and depth of these offerings would be impossible to maintain without parent and community support.
The Piedmont Arts Fund has an Open Call for Art through entrythingy.com for the 3rd Annual Big Art Show in March for 2D, 3D visual art and jewelry that closes on February 23, 2019. Community Artists are encouraged to enter this juried show. The Big Art Show at the Piedmont Center for the Arts is open between March 16 and March 30th, 2019 with proceeds supporting the Arts throughout the Piedmont Unified School District.
