CAMP VERDE - Let the art flow.

Rainbow Acres in Camp Verde is one of 14 organizations who will receive an Arts Learning Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

The latest awards, totaling more than $30,000, represent the second round, "Cycle B," of the program. Most of the awardees are schools. Rainbow Acres is a renowned home for adults with developmental disabilities.

For Rainbow Acres, the grant helps the continuation of the Fine Arts Painting Class. According to Margie Beach, director of Communications and Community Relations, the grant is used for supplies.

"We are very pleased to learn about this grant, which will help defray costs associated with the Fine Art Studio at Rainbow Acres," Beach said.

The art classes are taught on a volunteer basis by Marlys Mallet and Michael Redhawk of Sedona.

The program at Rainbow Acres allows the Ranchers to participate in the fine arts and improve their fine motor skills. Beach said it gives them the opportunity to look at objects in a different ways and the ability to represent something that is or is not in front of them.

Most importantly, she said, "it has really instilled self-confidence."

Mallet and Redhawk come to Rainbow Acres twice a week, teaching four students in the morning and four students in the afternoon.

"We would love for another artist or two to come in and volunteer as well," Beach added.

Grants are funded by the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts funding to the State of Arizona. Arts Learning Grants provide matching funds for quality projects that are chosen through a rigorous selection process.

The Commission on the Arts, a governor-appointed board, met Nov. 8 and announced the awards on Jan. 3.
