Grants of up to $10,000 to Utah schools and school districts that have received previous funding, to have one or more artists working in the school to create an art project with students. Artists and students should spend at least 40 hours working together and can include professional development opportunities for classroom teachers.

Project grants are an opportunity for a school or school district to more deeply and creatively undertake a project to have arts in the school. Project grants may incorporate a theme using the arts as a means to advance a school goal or value, such as saving the environment or exploring other cultures, using the Golden Rule, or creating new student work, i.e., a mural, musical, poetry anthology, etc. The funding must be primarily used for direct artist-to-student instruction, but the grant may additionally or alternatively provide professional development time for classroom teachers.

Funds may be used for one or more artists working in a school and may also include multi-disciplinary projects.

• Because Project Grants are flexible in scope, it is incumbent upon the school or district to show depth of planning and articulate goals as related to arts learning outcomes.
• Artist/student contact time beyond the 40 hour minimum can be creatively designed.
• Arts Education Project Grants can use multiple artists in multiple disciplines.
• School or school district may bring in artistic companies, exhibitions, speakers, lecture demonstrations, etc. in addition to the teaching artist.
• The artist contact time can be with parents or the community in addition to the minimum artist/student component.
• Budget may include money up to $400 for consumable supplies and instructional materials and up to $400 towards related equipment. Equipment purchases must directly relate to the proposed project.
