ARTS Partnership: Arts Reaching and Teaching in Schools

Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP)

Description

The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program places arts specialists in over 100 schools throughout Utah. The program operates under the direction of the Utah State Office of Education and receives legislative funding. The specialists teach side by side with the classroom teachers to provide exceptional arts instruction that is integrated into the core curricula. BYU, the University of Utah, Utah State University, Southern Utah University, Weber State University, and Westminster College provide professional development to train the specialists and school faculties in many of the participating schools.

BYU is proud to be a participant in this program, and the BYU Arts Partnership coordinates its programs to optimize the benefits for teachers and students.

Friends of Art Works for Kids provides the advocacy for this program.
