    I have seen both forms on Wikipedia (in the titles of ancient grammar books). Which is correct?
    And what is the relationship between "Ars" and "Grammatica(e)"?

    Both forms are valid and they both have the same effective meaning: The Art of Grammar.
    In Ars Grammatica, grammatica is a nominative adjective agreeing with ars.
    In Ars Grammaticae, grammaticae is a genitive noun in its own right.
