Held the second Saturday of each month from 2 to 4 pm

UMOCA invites children of all ages and their families to discover our changing exhibitions and participate together in hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator. Each activity connects to a brand new idea, medium or theme explored by an artist currently exhibited in the museum. Projects are suitable from toddler to tween in a wide range of abilities.

Family Art Saturday is offered free of charge.
Museum admission is a $5 suggested donation to help support our programming.

Habitat Artist’s Book
Claire Taylor is one of UMOCA’s current artists-in-residence. Inspired by her encounters with wildlife, her work explores the ecology and implications of intra- and inter-species communication. Using watercolors and inspiration from the world around us, create a book about your surroundings.

APR 13, 2019
Shady Acres Inspired
Join University of Utah students as they create a fun Family Art Saturday project based off our Main Gallery exhibition, Shady Acres. Shady Acres is about the reality of the suburbs and how artists interpret their experience growing up in an “out of city” life. How can we look at our world differently through everyday objects? Come and find out!
