Grants of up to $3,500 for Utah schools and school districts to engage an artist for a residency program utilizing art to enhance learning. Applicants are encouraged to contact the grantor before applying. Eligible residency programs are a minimum of 40 hours, include an in-service component for school faculty and at least one component for the public.
Artist-in-Residence Grants are for first-time arts education applicants. Artist-in-Residence activities may focus on a particular core area (such as math, science, language arts, and social studies) through dance, theater, music, storytelling, film/video, visual arts, folk arts and creative writing.
The intent of residencies is to nurture the creation of artistic work by learners, not to replicate the work of the artist (i.e., performing the artist’s choreography or play). Our goal is to provide a significant artist/student interaction. In order to achieve this, the artist must work with target groups for a specified minimum amount of time.
All residencies/projects require an in-service for the school/faculty, and at least one component for the general public. This component may be, but is not limited to: a final performance/exhibit, a time when parents/public can visit to observe students and the artist, a publication that is shared beyond the residency setting, unveiling of a site-specific work of art/installation, a performance at an area senior center, Rotary Club or healthcare facility, posting written work or images on a website, distributing a film, etc.
The artist must work with one target group of students for a minimum of eight hours and additional target groups for a minimum of three hours each; combined the residency must be 40 hours, and must include within the 40 hours, preparation time for the teaching artist, a public presentation element, and faculty professional development.
No funds may be used for supplies or equipment.
