Six Utah teachers and 22 schools and school districts across Utah will receive $65,100 in arts education grants, announced Wednesday by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
Grants are given to provide funding for comprehensive arts-education projects, either with an artist or by accessing the services of an artistic company. The projects may be thematic and focus on a core curriculum area (math, science, language arts or social studies, for example) through dance, theater, music, storytelling, film and video, visual arts or creative writing.
The Arts & Museums division awarded six teacher-initiated project grants of $500 each. These are designed to help teachers and administrators learn more about an artistic discipline.
