Family Art Saturday
Held the second Saturday of each month from 2 to 4 pm, Family Art Saturday invites children of all ages and their adult companions to explore UMOCA exhibitions and participate together in collaborative hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator. Projects are suitable for a wide variety of ages and abilities. FREE.
Making A Hive
The Utah Biennial: Mondo Utah looks at how artists have used the Beehive State in their art. Work like a bee–together, that is!–to create a collective wall sculpture made up of individual honeycombs, each representing the person who creates it
Local artist Venessa Gromek uses tent poles and lace to create lightweight, abstract sculptures that can be easily assembled and disassembled, blending the ideas of shelter and utility with the aesthetics of modern sculpture.
Make your own abstract sculptures using popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners.
Ignacio Uriarte uses materials from the office to address the structure and constraint of working in the corporate world. What would you do if your teacher left the classroom and you could make art out of any school supply you saw? Create artwork using pencils, paper, paper clips, rubber bands, glue and other classroom supplies.
For many artists today, including the artists in our Analogital exhibition, the pixel (or square) becomes a building block for developing digital images creating everything from patterns to representations.
February’s project will explore the pixel outside of the digital world. Using graph paper and markers, children will transform individual differently colored pixels grouped together into images similar to video game landscapes from the 1990′s.
