Teen & Adult Programs

Portfolio Review Day
On the third Saturday of each January, high school seniors are invited to SMA to meet with representatives from colleges, universities, and art schools in the intermountain west. Over the years this program has helped students to be accepted into various art programs as well as receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in art scholarships and financial aid.

Held in conjunction with the All-State High School Show, Portfolio Day has become an important event where not only can high school students plan for their future, but also where professors and artists from institutions across the state come together to network and reflect on the role of visuals art in higher education, and vice versa. SMA has become recognized as a leading supporter to the younger generation of artists in Utah through events such as this.

A night for local high school students to experience SMA in a new way – bring your friends and enjoy refreshments, art and music!

Junior Art Guild
Participation in the Junior Art Guild, available for all teenagers ages 14-19, is a unique way to learn more about art, get to know new people, and become involved in the community.  Monthly activities are planned and executed by the student guild officers and Springville Museum staff.  Past events have included service projects, field trips to artists' studios and local museums, and other art-related activities. 

Art Royalty
The Springville Museum of Art Royalty is a position of prestige, honor and opportunity in Springville. It is a tradition that has been carried and continued for many years and is a part of Springville’s culture.  The electing of Art Royalty began in 1907 for the students at Springville High School. In the early days, the junior high and high school were combined, and the students would raise money to purchase their favorite painting or sculpture for the Museum’s Permanent Collection.  A young lady was nominated from each class, and the class that raised the most money would also get to have their representative as Art Queen. The Art Queen winner would present the chosen art piece in an honorary assembly.
          Today, the girls competing for Art Royalty are required to fill out applications asking about their school and extracurricular activities, service, involvement in arts-related activities and how they would promote the Museum as a member of the Art Royalty. The applications are submitted to the Museum and the finalists are chosen.  The finalists and their mothers are then invited to a brunch, where the girls demonstrate a talent in front of a panel of judges and then participate in a private interview with the judges. The Art Royalty is then announced at the Art Ball.
