Sketching in the Museum Galleries

Participate in this informal program from 1 to 4 p.m. every Sunday and Monday holiday when the Museum is open!

Sharpen observation skills and have fun at the same time with sketching in the galleries. An MFAH teaching artist is on hand with paper, pencils, and clipboards to get you started. Look for signs in the main lobbies to tell you which gallery the Sketching Cart is located in that day.

This family program is free with general admission and open to adults, kids, couples—everyone's invited! Visit for more.
