Legal Question in Intellectual Property in Utah

I am a performing arts school teacher. If i create a piece of artwork, take a picture of my students, cut a piece of music, or choreograph a dance for them to do, outside of my paid hours, and am not paid for that work, do the intellectual rights belong to me, or the school?
