The Individual Artist Grant Folk Arts Fellowship (IAGFAF) supports master artists in their efforts to preserve an artistic tradition—as a living legacy for their community—by helping them to pass their knowledge and skills on to a qualified and competent apprentice(s). This grant category enables master artists and (where appropriate) apprentices to 1) set aside time for intensive teaching and learning of the tradition and/or 2) purchase materials for the work at hand. Applications for these grants are reviewed by an external, impartial peer review panel and in recognition of exemplary artistic merit within a traditional art form.

Reginald Adams is known for his work with community youth, teaching them the skills to design and fabricate ceramic tile mosaics in the Houston area. For this commission, Adams worked with students from Fleming Middle School, using the concept of sacred geometry to generate designs to be fabricated. The artist was able to work with a relatively tight budget by initiating his own partnerships with area businesses, schools, and the community. He instructed students in the design method and then taught them how to finalize that design by fabricating the hand-painted ceramic tiles in the studio. The result was an installation of 30 individual mosaic panels adorning the exterior walls of the Kashmere Multi-Service Center in the Kashmere Gardens neighborhood.
