Educators

As we emerge from the era of social distancing, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) continues to provide opportunities for connection between artists and audiences, now with hybrid programming that can be experienced online or in the Museum. CAMH will meet you at your comfort level however you choose to engage with contemporary art and artists, either through art-making activities for all ages, artist talks and performances, or exploring the art of the Museum from your classroom with a virtual tour.

We know that this is a challenging moment for educators, parents, and students. The Education and Public Programs Team at CAMH is here to work with you and provide support and inspiration.
