What is SWAP?
The mission of the StateWide Art Partnership is to help establish Visual Art Education as a regular part of the general curriculum in the Utah Schools. Through the various programs of the partnership, teachers can learn to understand and appreciate art in ways that may result in a lifelong commitment to art as a part of their lives and that of their students. This commitment and resulting enthusiasm can be used to add richness to a curriculum that serves the students and the families in Utah. Every child should know and benefit from their valuable visual art heritage as citizens of this great state.
