Free Folk Arts Workshops
UA&M is accepting applications for our FREE workshop series, Living Folk Arts for Kids and Adults. This program allows interested learners in schools, arts and community organizations, or museums to actively engage in the folk arts.
Interested participants can choose to schedule a wide range of traditional arts workshops taught by folk artists from across Utah. Workshops may be held at the Chase Home Museum in Salt Lake City, or your organization may arrange to have the workshop come to your location. If you, your school, or your group are interested in organizing one of these workshops, please explore our roster of folk artists and fill out the form linked below to let us know what types of folk artists you’re interested in and where you’d like the workshop to take place.
We are thrilled to offer these workshops and look forward to learning about and celebrating folk art with you!
Poet Laureate's Student Broadside Project
Lisa Bickmore, the poet laureate for the State of Utah (appointed 2022-2027) has asked us to share an exciting project with the arts learning community. Thanks to an Academy of American Poets Fellowship, Lisa's micro-press is implementing civic project focused on engaging young people. This student project from Moon in the Rye introduces students to the art of creating broadisides, which combine writing with printmaking.
Lisa will work directly with Utah students, K-12, to create work centered on the environment—specifically the Great Salt Lake, but any water-related subject. She will visit classrooms and carry out writing and visual projects with prompts, instruction, and tools. She can work with teams of teachers in visual arts, language arts, and science as well, to bring this project to Utah students. She will work within local communities to stage events that allow students to exhibit and share the work they create.
This flexible project and can be adapted to fit many different needs and situations. If you are interested in bringing this project to your K-12 students, fill out this form to let Lisa know your needs and your questions.
