Family Day







Education Staff at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts are doing their best to provide safe, fun and education learning tools during this time.

Our motto is “We are not just about art on the walls but art in our lives”.

Due to government regulations Family Day and Art Thursdays are postponed until further notice.  However, you can still enjoy the awesome activities we had planned in the comfort of your own home! 

You can find all of the content for our Art Survival Kits available to Download on our Blog! 


We are currently working to provide additional online content for at home use. As a way to provide continued access to the many art resources in our West Texas region - four arts organizations have teamed up to provide daily online arts-centric programming for all ages.  This Joint Online Learning Initiative (JOLI) is an effort of The Grace Museum, The Center for Contemporary Arts, National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature, Old Jail Art Center, and San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.  Together we provide extensive and varied collections and programs that are sure to engage all ages!

Please check in with our Facebook/Instagram and Website for updated information.


We are also working with other local organizations such as STARbase and Stephen Central Library to broaden our Art Survival Kit packets and include interdisciplinary STEAM curriculum.






















 Family Day STEAM 2019 




 SAMFA and its partners have teamed up for Family Day STEAM, coinciding with ASU & STEAM Central's Rocketry Camp. 

Campers will be volunteering their rocket-building expertise on Family Day, as well as displaying their art and research.

The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts’ Family Day program is hosted monthly and free of charge to community members. Family Day provides a participatory exploration of global cultures and themes based on SAMFA’s collections. This cultural and thematic exploration is achieved by utilizing the entire museum facilities to provide extensive displays of artifacts, a variety of food samples (including visitor participation in cooking), live music and/or cultural performances and four or more visual art hands-on projects. In addition, there is no admission fee to the Museum’s current exhibits during Family Day.
