Look! Discover! Create! Family Experiences at the Museum

When your family walks through the doors of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston there is a studio or gallery program designed specifically for you! Family Programs at the MFAH work to develop the next generation of life long museum goers by providing opportunities to continually learn about the processes, techniques, and motivations behind some of the world’s most treasured works of art.

Classes and Workshops

Classes and workshops at the MFAH are designed to offer an in-depth learning experience for the entire family. Homeschool Family Workshops provide curriculum-linked gallery experiences and studio projects for homeschool families in the Houston area. The Glassell Junior School, on the MFAH campus, offers art instruction for children ages 3 to 18. Year-round classes and workshops at Glassell run the gamut of creativity—from multimedia & cartooning to miniatures & wearable art.
