Family Day at SUMA

Families and friends in the community are invited to join SUMA online for special virtual activities. In partnership with artsFUSION, each Family Day has a hands-on art activity that participants can do safely at home, following along through a Facebook Watch Party.

Currently, Family Day is offered virtually through SUMA's Facebook page, Vimeo, or the SUMA at Home website. You can visit SUMA to view art for inspiration and then follow along with the art activity at home. 

Videos are published on Facebook at 2 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month. Share your works of art with us on Instagram by tagging us @suma_museum and using hashtag #SUMAatHome

Wonder Wednesday at SUMA

Drop-in for an adventure and fun make-and-take activities for K-5 students! Wonder Wednesdays involves several community partners, so elementary students always have a place to go during early-outs in Iron County. 

Children accompanied by an adult can drop by anytime between 2-4 p.m. for make-and-take activities or self-guided programming at any of the following organizations: the Frontier Homestead State Park (first Wednesday), the Cedar City Library (second Wednesday), and the SUU STEM Center (fourth Wednesday). On the third Wednesdays, SUMA will celebrate an artist in the museum with an art activity and information about each artist.

Earn an extra prize by attending Wonder Wednesday at each location at least once this fall! Get your passport at any Wonder Wednesday event. Collect a stamp at each location and then turn it in at SUMA to collect your prize!

Spring Breakout 2021 Banner

Spring Breakout: Art Camp offers fun art discussion and hands-on experiences for K-5th grade students in Iron County. Each half-day session focuses on a theme and includes age-appropriate, hands-on projects inspired by artworks in our galleries and collections. Students must be checked into the museum by their parents or guardian for each day of the camp. The camp is split into a morning group for K-2nd graders and an afternoon group for 3rd-5th graders. Although the camp is designed for students to attend the entire week, parents or guardians can sign their children up for single days upon request.
