Woven Histories | Open Studio

Inspired by the diverse heritages of Houston, Texas, CAMH’s Teen Council invites you to weave a colorful paper tapestry to represent the parts of you that express your personal heritage and history.

A limited number of Art Kits containing instructions and supplies for this activity will be distributed in-person at the Museum from 2–4PM while supplies last. Pickup for Art Kits are low contact and designed with the safety of our visitors, staff, and community in mind.

About Open Studio

CAMH’s Open Studios feature drop-in, hands-on activities that draw inspiration from the exhibitions on view. The first Saturday of every month you will have an opportunity to explore imaginative concepts inspired by world-renowned artists who show at the Museum by making your own artworks in response to theirs. Experiment with new materials, explore fresh ideas, and make new friends. Whether you stay for five minutes or two hours, you’re invited to interact with art in new and profound ways at Open Studio. All ages are welcome; admission is always free.

About Teen Council

Teen Council serves at the Museum’s vehicle for attracting the city’s teen population to CAMH and exposing them to the vibrant field of contemporary art. For council members, the group serves as a highly collaborative creative incubator that opens up opportunities for leadership, visual literacy, and life skill development. During weekly meetings, the council is introduced to the inner workings of museums and to the dynamic Houston arts community. Activities are decided upon by its members and can change from year to year, but past programs developed by the group include art markets, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry slams.
