    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) – Utah Arts & Museums has granted $65,100 in Arts Education Grants for Schools and School Districts to 22 schools across the state representing 12 counties. Arts Education Grants provide funding for comprehensive arts education project with one or more artists and/or access to the services of an artistic company. Arts education projects may be thematic and focus on a particular core area such as math, science, language arts and social studies through dance, theatre, music, storytelling, film/video, visual arts and creative writing. Applicants may also apply for an Artist-in-Residence to provide schools with one artist in the discipline of the applicant’s choice for a 40-hour residency. The intent of the residency experience is to nurture creation of artistic work by learners.

    Arts Education Teacher-Initiated Project Grants totaled $3,000. Teacher-Initiated Project Grants provide opportunities for teachers or administrators to gain knowledge and skills in an artistic discipline of their choice. This grant is for the classroom teacher who may not have a degree in one of the art forms and has a particular interest in increasing both knowledge and skills.

    “Arts education is vital for building our communities,” said Lynnette Hiskey, Interim Director of Utah Arts & Museums. “We’re glad to offer this financial assistance to help schools and organizations work with professional artists, gain innovative tools that can be used to reach learners, and ensure quality arts education in our schools and our communities.”

    The next deadline for Arts Education Grants will be March 1, 2014.
