Van Gogh to Play Dough : Art for Toddlers

As a professional museum educator and art historian, I love participating in art programs for children. Utah has a handful of top notch museums, not least of which is the Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art (MOA). My toddler, Ezra, and I attended one of the MOA’s most popular family programs this summer called Van Gogh to Play Dough. Van Gogh to Play Dough is an art program for little ones ages 2-4 years and their caregivers. It includes an interactive tour of one of the museum’s exhibitions followed by hands-on art making in the museum’s art studio. To begin

Hands on Art : Art and Ceramic Studio

Last week, we had the chance to partner up with Hands on Art. It's a Ceramic and Art Studio that's super family friendly. The owner, Iraima, used to run art classes out of her garage, but felt there was a need in the community and opened her own shop in Farmington. They have adult and children art classes, parties for scout, church, and work groups and Paint Nights. Basically, something for everyone.

Newspaper Rock | Adventurin' | Monticello

Located just West of Church Rock (above) you'll find yourself on a nice 20 minute drive to Newspaper Rock. You'll also pass a bunch of abandoned cabins that once belonged to a religious cult that worshiped Church Rock. (Things only the locals tell you.) Think of Newspaper Rock like a Facebook and Twitter Page only a 2000 year old version. Could you imagine sitting there and chiseling out your story, who knew how long that would take you? This petroglyph site is 200 square foot area one the largest and best preserved. We came up with all sorts of theories

Canyon Country Discovery Center | Four Corners School | Monticello

The main reason The Salt Project even went to Monticello, was because of the Canyon Country Discovery Center. We'd been e-mailing back and forth and they opened out eyes to how much we were missing! We'd been to Moab plenty of times, but never further south on the eastern side of Utah. So you can thank them for all the awesome things we're going to post in the next few weeks. They have a brand new building that's constantly adding new features, exhibits, tours, nature walks and things to do like crazy! Here's Lyndie giving us a tour, it's quite

My kids (10yrs-18m) love museums, they love Field Trippin', they love exploring. The Leonardo is one of their favorite museums and here are 9 reasons why they love it! 1.
