“We are pleased to offer arts-rich and arts-integrated instruction at Diamond Valley Elementary School with the expert help of our music teacher, Mr. Jones. Most of this program is funded through the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. With your help, we can work to keep the BTSALP Program at our school and expand the program into every Utah elementary school.
The advocacy organization, Friends of Art Works for Kids, was established to protect funding for arts specialists in schools and to advocate for elementary arts education. If you have not already done so, please show your support of the cause by visiting www.artworksforkids.org. You can use the site to become a ‘friend of Art Works for Kids,’ to contact your legislator and convey how important this program is to you and your child, and to learn more about how and why arts-integrated education works.
