Public Programs: Open Call for Skill Set Instructors and Proposals
The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is now accepting proposals from the public to lead a class in conjunction with Skill Set, CAMH’s new hands-on workshop program and skills exchange.

Skill Set allows presenters to pass on the various skills they have mastered in a non-traditional hands-on workshop style classroom setting. Past and upcoming Skill Sets include the history and use of turntables, altering musical instruments, and beekeeping. Classes do not have to take place at CAMH and can occur throughout Houston if necessary.
