“Art is my favorite class," says Courtney. "It's fun and it's different. I like creating and using my imagination. I would be really sad if there were no art."

In Utah, elementary art was removed from the curriculum years ago. Fortunately, thanks to funding from PCEF and in collaboration with the Kimball Art Center, 1500 elementary students at McPolin, Parley's Park, and Trailside Elementary schools receive art lessons through the EVA (Elementary Visual Arts) program. Each month, students create art in the style of the featured artist, and their creations decorate the walls of our schools. From Claude Monet to Peter Max, Salvador Dali to Dr. Seuss, the students are expressing themselves while gaining appreciation for our culture. 

Art is a critical piece to developing the whole child. "Art is fun and makes me feel confident," says one 5th grader. Another student says the best part about art is that, "In art, we never make mistakes!

Thank you to Zions Bank for the support of the EVA program.
