About the Program
Iconoclast Artists is a nonprofit, in-school program, free to students at more than 20 elementary, middle, and high schools, and juvenile-justice facilities, in underserved Houston and Galveston communities. Teachers work with young people once a week to provide academic, artistic, social, and emotional support, with the goal of breaking through barriers of race, religion, socio-economics, and ethnicity to allow the students to be heard.
Drop in! This event is free. On Thursdays, Museum general admission is free, courtesy of Shell Oil Company.
