Choose Between Two Options

  • $175 for a four-hour pop-art portrait workshop for two (a $350 value)
  • $299 for a four-hour pop-art portrait workshop for four (a $700 value)<p>

To prepare for the pop-art portrait workshop, each student emails five close-up profile photographs of themselves or a loved one, preferably shot against a light background. The Museum of Cultural Arts’ resident artists transfer one of the photo’s outlines onto a canvas, which pupils then paint in accordance with their creative whims. The resulting four-color pop-art image stands out on a wall, and can be used as a double to escape conversations with colorblind neighbors. All materials for the workshops are provided, and extra classes will be scheduled as necessary.<p>

Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston

Art can foster a sense of community and inspire social change. It is this belief that drives artists Reginald and Rhonda Adams, who founded Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston in 1999 when they noticed a lack of community participation in the arts. Using their vibrant center as a springboard, the couple and their staff have brought art programs to more than 30 public schools and 15,000 underserved youth, helping the youngsters unleash their innate creativity and heighten their social awareness. Within the museum, rotating exhibits, such as May’s Queens of Creativity Mother Earth Exhibition, carry pertinent social messages such as the importance of calling Earth’s core on Mother’s Day. Community projects such as a recent mural painting for a school and collaborations with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society help carry out the museum’s mission as a vehicle for expression.

My twin 15 year old daughters had the best time and are they love their art work. They each now have a portrait they will cherish for a lifetime! I've told everyone I know about it. Definitely one of the best experiences we've had since moving to the Houston area 14 years ago.
