UMOCA’s education programs invite curiosity and offer opportunities to engage not only in hands-on art-making activities, but also in an exploration of the role of art in our lives and our community.

Compiled below are links to a number of our educational activities for your use. We would love for you to share photos of completed projects either on social media or by email. Please be sure to tag UMOCA if you post them on social media. @utahmoca #utahmoca #umoca #arteveryday

Art Everyday
Designed by our Education staff, these projects are simple and can be created using materials found in the home.

Art Truck
The UMOCA Art Truck makes contemporary art accessible by bringing it to schools and community events across the state free of charge. Each on-site visit includes an educator-let exploration of the exhibition and an educator’s guide with structured lesson plans to supplement their tour and incorporate the Art Truck more deeply into their curriculum. Below are links to past guides and this year’s virtual tour.

Evenings for Educators
Organized by the Springville Museum of Art, the Evenings for Educators series is one of the longest-running programs of the StateWide Art Partnership (SWAP). These events are held on average once a month during the academic year at locations across the state of Utah.
