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.
Every second or third Saturday of the month, families can come to the MOA and take a guided tour of a current exhibition and create a fun, hands-on art activity. MORE
Every Tuesday and Thursday, children ages 2-4 years and their caregivers can come to the MOA to have an educational experience in our exhibition galleries and also create a hands-on art activity. MORE
On the first Saturday of each month, families can visit the MOA anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon to participate in Open Studio, a free-choice art-making experience related to one of the Museum’s current exhibitions. MORE
Designed for children ages five years and older, costume tours at the BYU Museum of Art give youngsters the chance to imaginatively explore the setting and context of their favorite Americans in small groups of 8-10 children. MORE
