FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Arts Council says it has awarded a Teaching Art Together grant that will fund an artist residency in eight schools in the eastern part of the state.

A statement from the agency says the grant will allow teachers to collaborate with professional artists, who will design and implement one- to four-week residencies at the schools.

The schools that received grant money are located in Knox, Clay, Jackson and Owsley counties. Some of the artists who will teach at different schools include basket weaver Dianne Simpson, writer Judy Sizemore and musician Mitch Barrett.

Diana Mills, who was the grant writer for Barbourville City School in Knox County, said the grant will help broaden the educational horizons of students.
