Utah: Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program
In 2008, the Utah State Legislature funded the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, a new public/private arts education initiative that allocates funds to hire arts specialists for Utah schools. Administered by the Utah Arts Council, the program will provide $16 million over four years to hire art specialists to work with elementary school teachers. The program also promotes partnerships with universities that offer pre-service and professional training, and supports the supply of instruments and art materials. A portion of the funding will be used to evaluate student progress. For more information please review the program guidelines or contact Lydia Durand, communications manager at the Utah Arts Council.
