HANG@MFAH is a group of motivated area teens who are interested in the visual arts and digital media—everything from video-game hacking to talking about contemporary art. Check out the different meet-ups!
- HANG Meet-ups Guided by a local mentor artist, HANG@MFAH experiments with new digital tools to develop and organize innovative programming at the Museum. Teens also have the opportunity to learn about careers in the arts while connecting to their peers, museum staff, and local arts community.
- "What Does It Mean to Make?" Art-Making Workshops Have you ever looked at a work of art and wondered, "How did they make that?" Experiment with new materials and ways of making art while developing your own artistic process. Each workshop includes time in the galleries and in the studio. All teens, ages 13 to 19, are welcome. No previous art experience needed! Preregistration required.
- "How to Look at Contemporary Art" Gallery Chats For any teen whose response to a work of contemporary art has been "I don't get it" or "Why is this art?" these chats offer something new. Join an informal discussion to learn basic tools for engaging, interpreting, and experiencing contemporary and modern artworks. "How to Look at Contemporary Art" teaches teens about strategies and tactics for looking at contemporary art as well as about the art-historical context.
