Did you know that our amazing art program is funded, in part, through a grant from the Barbara Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program? Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program provides the funding to pay our very talented Mrs. Gray to teach our art classes.
According to the BTS Arts webpage, “Beverley Taylor Sorenson was instrumental in reinvigorating elementary arts education in Utah. She worked with area schools and led the effort to ensure Utah children have a complete and well-rounded education. Beverley’s mission began when she recognized the severe lack of resources for teacher training in the arts and the lack of legislative funding for school-based arts programs. Through Beverley’s driving influence, arts education in Utah received a significant boost when the Utah State Legislature funded the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, which supports teacher training at colleges and universities all over the state. The program also pays for arts supplies, equipment, and materials, and supports ongoing research to ensure quality implementation and results. Beverley’s inspired work continues to impact thousands of bright young minds to this day.”
With a new legislative session coming in January, we invite you to consider becoming a friend of BTSArts.
