The arts, perhaps more than any other subject, help students understand themselves. From music and dance, to painting and sculpting, the arts allows students to explore new worlds and to view life from another perspective. In addition, the arts encourages individuals to sharpen their skills and abilities, and to nurture their imagination and intellect.
The Granite Education Foundation firmly believes the arts have a significant role in education both for their intrinsic value and for the ways in which they can enhance general academic achievement and improve students' social and emotional development.
The annual Student Art Night (formerly Soup-er Art Night) showcases art students from Granite District High Schools creating two and three dimensional works of art that are judges by renowned Utah artists. Past judges have included Al Rounds (fine art), Dawna Barton (fine art) and Karl Quilter (sculptor). Proceeds from the art sales help fund student scholarships.
