Family Saturdays: Explore Public Art

Families and kids of all ages are invited to attend Blue Star's Family Saturday events.

Sponsored by H-E-B, these triannual events focus on our current exhibitions and bring together local artists and community organizations to offer creative activities. Works on view become the inspiration for art making and kids learn how to look at and understand contemporary art better through fun activities.

These events are free and open to the public and visitors enjoy complimentary food and refreshments,

Creative Classrooms

Blue Star Contemporary's Creative Classrooms brings art to you! Each school year a local artist is selected as our Artist-in-Community and takes on the task of translating his or her studio practice to hands-on activities. These activities encourage creative, critical, and exploratory thinking while introducing students to contemporary art.

Blue Star's Artist-in-Community will work with students on a 6-week project, visiting the class once a week. All materials are provided and this program is FREE to bring to your classroom!

This year our Artist-in-Community, Emily Fleisher brings art to Bowden Elementary's second-grade classrooms.

If you are interested in Creative Classrooms partnering with your school in the future contact, please contact Exhibitions and Programs Manager, Jack McGilvray at jack@bluestarart.org.
