Long considered the kick-off to Houston’s season of holiday celebrations, HISD is holding its annual Holiday Greeting Card Competition on Tuesday, Nov. 14, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The competition will name one elementary, middle, and high school winner, and their works will be featured on thousands of Christmas cards that Superintendent Mike Miles will send to HISD’s many community partners this year.
The HISD Teacher Advisory Group (TAG) is a group of 14 passionate educators assembled by the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston (CAMH) with the purpose of sharing their knowledge and experiences with CAMH staff in order to guide and inspire future programs within the museum’s Education and Public Programs department.
HISD art clubs and classes assembled at MacGregor Park to take part in the 2023 Houston Art Bike Parade and Festival on Saturday, May 13. Presented by the Houston Parks Board and The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, the Art Bike Festival is an annual opportunity for students and community artists to showcase their creativity and to explore the bayou trails around the park.
Grab your markers, crayons, and No. 2 pencils, because registration is now open for the HISD Police Department’s third annual art contest in honor of Police Appreciation Week.
Aspiring artists in the fifth grade are free to use any type of material to showcase their inner Picasso in this year’s contest. Artwork can be submitted by individual HISD students or on behalf of an entire HISD classroom.
Designed to recognize Police Appreciation Week, which kicks off on May 15, the contest aims to help students visualize the work performed by police officers and, perhaps, go on to choose a career in law enforcement.
