PCEF Donors Ensure the Arts Flourish in Our Schools!

EVA provides elementary visual arts instructors at Parley's Park, McPolin, and Trailside Elementary Schools. (Note – Jeremy Ranch Elementary has its own parent-run art program.) 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 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.

The idea first blossomed when parents, the Kimball and the PCEF became deeply motivated to create a school art program, and EVA was launched during the 2013 - 2014 school year.  Art is a critical piece to developing the whole child. And, children are responding! A first grader at Trailside said this about the art class "It's fun and makes me feel confident" while anotherstudent says the best part about art is that " art we never make mistakes."
