Schools + Educators

Public Art UHS collaborates with schools and educators to engage K-12 students through onsite, at-home, and in-classroom experiences. Through free, inquiry-based tours across the UH System campuses and hands-on experiences, students build visual literacy, critical thinking, and creative expression skills. At Public Art UHS, students have the unique opportunity to explore art in a higher education setting.

Evenings for Educators events and downloadable Educator Resources provide support for integrating art into your curriculum. Resources are aligned with Common Core and Texas State Standards and connect art with a variety of academic subjectsmath, science, language arts, humanities, Texas history, and more.
