Family Programs

Family Programs at Brigham Young University Museum of Art are designed to engage children and their caregivers in dynamic methods of looking at, taking about, and creating art. The art education experiences we provide support observation and analytical skills, foster meaningful inquiry and exploration, sustain thoughtful reflection, and encourage family togetherness.
