Art After School is a multi-visit after school program available to all fourth-grade students in selected schools. Students come to AMSET for a series of intensive art experiences.

Art-To-Go is AMSET’s primary outreach program. This mobile program brings art education and hands-on art experience into classrooms, libraries, senior centers and neighborhood centers across our region. 

All Summer ArtVentures camps are taught by professional artists and art educators. Summer ArtVentures camps give participants a chance to work with professional, messy, icky sticky mediums to create works of art that they never thought possible. It’s about learning and fun!

 Family Arts Days are major events held quarterly and include art activities that are inspired by AMSET's four major exhibitions each year.  These family festivals combine exploration of the artwork on display, 

C-Space Computer Lab

 C-Space houses iPads loaded with child-friendly art education and

organized annually to promote and inspire 12th-grade artists
in our region for the past three decades.

From October through May, eighth-grade students from
Odom Academy in Beaumont, Texas visit AMSET monthly 
and gain valuable museum guide experience along the way.
