Motivate your teenager’s creativity over the long summer months with the new SUMA Summer Camp. Students ages 13-18 are invited to attend one, or more, of three sessions, providing historical context, technical workshops, and college and career preparation in the topics of Public Art, Digital Design, and Traditional Media. Each workshop will provide opportunities to learn from professionals in the field. Registration for the Public Art and Digital Design sessions are $100 and the Traditional Media, which will include over $50 in Supplies, is $120. Registration is limited and can be purchased online at, or by calling the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery at 435-586-5432 (Tue-Sat, noon-7pm).

The Public Art session will run from June 16-27, 2014. In this session students will learn how art has built communities throughout history, spanning from the era of cave paintings, to murals during the great depression, to contemporary work. The workshops will cover the major themes of community art and students will explore many types of art making, culminating in a mural which will become a valuable addition to the Frontier Homestead Museum.
