Artpace3 Touring Program

“We don’t have many opportunities to do art at our school. This gave the students a chance to really experience art.”
– Third Grade Teacher, January 2013

Offered throughout the year, Artpace’s free three-part touring program gives K-12 students a hands-on opportunity to explore and interact with contemporary art in a stimulating, laboratory setting.

    • Introductory Visit: An Artpace Associate Educator visits the students and leads an interdisciplinary workshop selected by the teacher.
    • Tour: The students tour Artpace’s exhibitions and spaces and create their own works of art in the Student Studio.
    • Reflection Visit: The Associate Educator returns to the classroom or organization to facilitate an additional TEKS-aligned workshop reflecting the group’s Artpace tour.

Partial bus reimbursement funds are available for interested schools and organizations.
