Rienzi Programs for Educators and Students

Rienzi is dedicated to making art available to everyone with a curiosity to learn.  

School Tours

To inquire about school tours, call Rienzi’s education office during business hours at 713.639.7800.

Tours of Rienzi encourage students (pre-K through grade 12) to develop a lifelong love of learning through art. Thematic tours connect with established curricula, encouraging students to engage in topics such as European history, world cultures, geography, and language arts. Specially trained gallery educators lead interactive tours, which emphasize close observation of objects and facilitate the development of essential visual and critical-analysis skills.
