Family and Children's Programs


Looking for a fun afternoon to spend with your family? The UMFA has many things to learn, do and explore. We have studio art activities for families every Third Saturday. If you would like a more self-directed activity, try our backpack program that lets you explore one gallery with activities, art, and games. Look for great family events throughout the year with our Artful Afternoons that helps families explore traveling exhibits at the UMFA. For a more in-depth experience, you can sign up for our classes for children. We also have great tours for groups with our trained docents or self guides you can download or check out from the front desk. For more information about any of these programs, call us at the UMFA 801.581.3580. or education@umfa.utah.edu.
