* On Thursday, April 17, they will take participants to Rienzi, a MFAH house museum, for a guided tour.  This lovely house was designed by prominent Houston architect John Staub in 1952 and is located on a beautifully landscaped 4-acre lot in River Oaks.  It houses a substantial collection of European decorative arts, paintings, furnishings, porcelain, and miniatures.  This is an amazing bargain at $6.
* On Tuesday, April 29, participants will be transported to Pct. 4’s Big Stone Lodge for a yummy lunch and a “hootenany” of southern, country, and bluegrass gospel music.  Another amazing deal for just a $5 suggested donation....

Experience Art in Houston

Are you new to our community? Or, maybe, you are looking for a fun activity to do with the family? Houston has so many wonderful places to visit;  one of my favorites is the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Before your visit the museum, stop by the library, and pick up a few of the book suggestions that I have provided. Sharing books together with your child, provides a great  opportunity to reflect upon that they think and to make fine art more relevant to them. 

According to the MFAH website, there are several ways you can enjoy the museum without having to pay admission.
