Dozens of students from three elementary schools were at the state Capitol Monday to show legislators some of the things they are learning in the integrated arts programs. Friends of Art Works for Kids is a grassroot initiative created to advocate for the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. Monday it hosted the second annual Day on the Hill, where parents, and community members gathered to show support for the integrated arts program. During the event, kids from Canyon Rim, Redwood and Mountain View elementary schools danced, sang and performed skits. The Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning program is currently in 130 elementary schools across the state; that's up from 75 last year. A request for $5 million in ongoing funding was made this legislative session. The money would allow the program to expand into even more schools in the 2014-2015 school year.
