Summer Break at the MFAH

Summer Break 2023

When school’s out, the Museum is the place to be for creating memories to last a lifetime.

Every Thursday in June and July, families are invited to enjoy gallery activities at the MFAH. Join teaching artists to explore works of art on view and experiment with new materials, tools, and processes to create your own art. Coloring sheets, colored pencils, and knowledgeable educators help spark discovery about the world of art. Admission is free.
