March is Youth Art Month!

Keep an eye out here for Youth Art Month activities!

Right now there are several events that are free to families.

March 6th is the first Saturday in the month and that means it is Hands On Houston at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft!  This month's activities are as follows:
HCCC will host a celebration of the metal arts in conjunction with its current exhibitions, Iron: Forged, Tempered, Quenched, featuring American blacksmithed objects, and eXtreme Tea, featuring exquisite tea implements. Families and visitors of all ages will enjoy participating in a metal-embossing activity, watching live demonstrations by Houston Area Blacksmiths’ Association and other artists, and viewing the exhibitions. Complimentary tea will be served by Té House of Tea.
Té House of Tea is a tranquil, elegant tea house located in the Montrose/River Oaks area of Houston. Té serves a variety of high-quality teas, with a focus on small farms and fair trade plantations. For more information, visit
