Sculptor Isamu Noguchi, designer of the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, described his gardens as “sculpture for sculpture.” Spend a spring day surrounded by the sculptures of Louise Bourgeois, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, and other notable contemporary artists. Create your own works of art, inspired by the more than 25 sculptures displayed beneath the sky.

About Homeschool Workshops
Homeschool workshops, specially designed for families who homeschool their children, feature activities that encourage parents and children to learn about and discover art together. Activities are interdisciplinary and teach about art and how art relates to other curricular areas such as language arts, science, and social studies. Each workshop includes an interactive gallery tour, followed by a group discussion in the galleries and an art-making activity that examines a select work of art. All participants receive materials to extend the lesson at home.

$7 per person (adults and children) for MFAH members
