The Museum of Cultural Arts Houston to Host Public Art Camp for Middle and High School Students Slated for June
MPAC Campers Will Work to Produce a Site Specific Public Art Project During the Summer
Beginning June 6th through July 1st, a mixture of 20 middle school and high school students will work alongside MOCAH’s professional artists to design and produce a public art project within a specified community in Houston.
“The 4-week intensive art camp (known as MPAC) allows students to hone their art skills and creativity with the use of their own hands, give back to the community through the arts, and work with highly skilled art professionals,” said Reginald, Founder of MOCAH.
Additionally, students will be given a guided tour which offers an exploration of some of Houston’s most historic communities, while also viewing MOCAH’s collection of community based art projects. Together, students will share artistic ideas, perspectives, and values working to develop and enhance their own creativity.

• Must be currently enrolled in Middle School or High School (Ages 14-19)

• Completed application
• Completed medical release form
