Resources – Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program

Dear Friend, 

We hope the school year is off to a great start for you and your child! We at Friends of BTS Arts are pleased your school has the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTS Arts). The arts educator in your school is providing your child a well-rounded education, one that includes arts-integrated instruction. 

Did you know BTS Arts has a unique program structure? The Utah State Board of Education administers the program statewide and collaborates with administrators and university staff from Brigham Young University, Dixie State University, Southern Utah University, University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State University, and Westminster College. These Universities and Colleges have a Beverley Taylor Sorenson Endowed Position which helps ensure the success of the program by providing our arts educators, students, and classroom teachers the best in arts education. Not only do they offer workshops and professional learning during the school year, but many offer camps and courses during the summer.
