The Red Apple Fund for Student Enrichment was inaugurated in 2006 to further the Delaware Art Museum’s educational mission. The Red Apple Fund finances tours of the Museum for school groups in academic levels ranging from kindergarten through grade 12 as well as individual enrollment for children and teens in studio art classes and seasonal camps that teach the fundamentals of art.
The Red Apple Fund is sponsored by the Anthony and Catherine Fusco Charitable Foundation and by Bank of America. This program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on www.DelawareScene.com.
