Art Encounters

Looking for a new art experience? Drop-in for Art Encounters. Led by artists and inspired by art at the MFAH, these programs offer you the opportunity to experiment with processes and materials, and to create community in new and different ways. Each event highlights the work of a different artist or exhibition. Admission is free, and supplies are provided.

You can spend as much or as little time as you like engaging with these encounters. Actively participate, or simply follow along. The way you take part is up to you! See the archive of Virtual Art Encounters.
