For Educators & Students
Teachers and school groups are welcome to visit the Museum during regular Museum hours. Discussion and activity-based group tours are available free of charge; please email email@example.com at least ten days in advance of your visit. Teachers who plan self-guided tours should also call to confirm the exhibition schedule and to make sure that other large groups are not pre-scheduled. This is to ensure the safety of the artwork, as well as the maximum enjoyment of your group’s visit. You may also wish to ask the age-appropriateness of the exhibition, or how to adjust the tour to meet the specific needs of your classroom.
CAMH offers a variety of Teacher Resources online and onsite. These resources consist of: a Teacher's Guide for Brown Foundation gallery exhibitions, a Project Supplement for Perspective exhibitions, and Teacher Development Workshops focused on bringing the interdisciplinary world of contemporary art into the classroom. All materials are related to current exhibitions on view at CAMH and are crafted to promote observation, analysis, and art making among elementary, middle, and high school students. For questions please contact Jamal Cyrus, Education Associate/Teen Council Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 713 284 8274.
Younger children may visit the Museum with their parents or with a group school tour. Please ask for a Family Guide, with special activities tailored for each exhibition, available free of charge at the Museum’s front desk. La Guia para Familias tambien está disponible en Español.
Many of the Museum’s events for teenage audiences are programmed by the Museum’s Teen Council (TC), a group of Houston area teens who work with the Museum staff to create events especially for their peers (and the young-at-heart). For upcoming events, check our calendar. TC accepts applications each spring for the following school year.
Students conducting research may visit our exhibition history or contact us for more information. Undergraduate and graduate students may apply for an internship but will need to contact your university or college for details on school credit.
