Request a Grant Writer

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.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants are encouraged to contact Arts Education Specialist, Jean Tokuda Irwin prior to applying.

Note: For schools with active PTA units that are submitting an arts education grant for the first time, it is suggested that you apply to the Utah PTA (http://www.utahpta.org/arts-education-grant) before applying for this grant. This is a great way to get to know how to put a successful residency together.

Grants require a 1:1 match that may be a combination of cash and/or in-kind. Matching funds must be associated directly with the residency/project and provided by the school/school district, PTA, PTO, school business partners, etc.

Requested artists MUST be approved for artistic and educational merit and/or included on the Utah Division of Arts & Museums Teaching Artist Roster located on artseducation.utah.gov, NowPlayingUtah.com or on the teaching artist rosters of other state arts agencies. International and national artists of artistic and educational acclaim not on the UA&M Teaching Artist Roster must be approved for artistic/educational excellence prior to submission of this application.

For information on how to access other rosters, call 801.236.7557.
