The MFAH Is a Place for Teens

Did you ever imagine that your computer programming class would help your art practice? Or that you can spend 30 minutes looking at one work of art? Check out hang@MFAH (Houston Art New Generation at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston). Hang@MFAH is for motivated teens who are interested in everything from video-game hacking to talking about art. Check out the different meet-ups below and come hang out, mess around and geek out (HOMAGO).


Programs for Teens

hang@MFAH Meet-Ups
Develop your art through tinkering, experimenting, and talking. Use digital and analog tools to make whatever you imagine! You and your friends learn the skills to complete you own projects with the help of mentor artists. Past projects featured video-game hacking, building drawing robots, soft-circuit and paper craft, 3-D modeling, and Makerbot printing. hang@MFAH is at capacity. E-mail teens@mfah.org to be added to the mailing list.

What Does It Mean to Make? Workshops
Have you ever wondered "How did they make that?" Experiment with new materials and ways of making art while developing tools and methods that you can use in your own artistic process. Participants explore a different topic each week! Sign up for one session or join for the series.

E-mail teens@mfah.org for more information on teen programs.
