School Programs

Chinati is committed to serving the young artists of the Big Bend and beyond. The education department partners with teachers and schools on specific activities that enhance and align with class curricula and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards. These are lively, active and thought-provoking programs that may last a half-day, a full day or even longer. Students visit exhibitions, create artwork at the museum’s Art Lab, engage with artists and may explore the region’s unique high desert environment. We encourage the educator to peruse through the following links. In addition to the standing projects Chinati offers, Education welcomes custom programs for particular needs or goals that may also be developed between teachers and the education staff.

Programming is free to all schools, educational groups and children. Contact Molly Bondy, Education and Intern Programs Manager, at to find out more and to schedule a visit.
