El Paso Museum of Art El Paso
Where are we going today?
There is something wonderful about art. You can create it, admire it, and be inspired by it. So why not head to somewhere that celebrates it, like the El Paso Museum of Art.
This museum is filled with exhibits and collections that reflect art from all over the world, and it's also a place where kids can join in and create themselves!
The collections at the El Paso Museum of Art cover four main topics - American, Contemporary, European and Mexican. Here, artists are celebrated, and kids can really learn about other cultures through the techniques and the colors.
Younger kids will be able to appreciate the colors and the pictures, whilst the older kids can start to look at why they love the artwork, the techniques, and perhaps the meaning behind them. It's a great talking point to get kids interested in the art world.
And you never know, they might be inspired themselves!
The exhibitions at the El Paso Museum of Art change across the year, so there are always new exhibits to look at.
Exhibit themes vary from specific artists, to musicians, to specific cultures. Make sure you check out what's on ahead of time so you don't miss out!
What would an art musuem be if you couldn't create yourself! The museum hold art classes for kids and adults (some for FREE!) where you can just create and learn from the art within the museum. There are often spring and summer camps too, where kids can really immerse themselves in creativity.
You might have a future Picasso on your hands!
