Schools with financial need may apply for funding to pay for bus transportation to the museum. Students will be scheduled for a docent guided or self-guided visit. Dates and times are limited, and teachers are asked to apply quickly.
Eligibility: Schools in El Paso and Doña Ana Counties with the most financial need will be considered. Each school may receive funding for up to four buses.
Museum Visit: Every effort will be made to accommodate preferred days and times for visits, however, please provide at least three options for your visit. Guided tours will be scheduled based on availability, and must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Teachers will be provided with pre-visit tips to make the most of the visit to the museum.
Deadline: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
This program is offered at no cost to schools through generous donations from United Bank of El Paso del Norte, Teresa E. Bustamante, and Jorge E. Vergen.
Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will open on July 31, 2017.
Conducted by trained docents, guided tours can highlight works from all the galleries, focus on a special exhibition or concept, or be tailored to the specific interests of your group. Guided tours are available for 10-50 visitors.
Self-guided tours allow your group to explore the galleries at your own pace, using special expanded didactic labels on works throughout the Museum. Self-guided tours are available to all age levels, for groups up to 100 visitors. Please schedule in advance to avoid overcrowding in the galleries.
Look & Do Tours
A gallery tour focusing on a specific technique, media or concept is followed by a related hands-on art activity in the Museum's classrooms led by Museum School faculty. Look & Do tours are geared towards K-8th grade levels, for groups of 12 to 25 participants. Please schedule one month in advance as a limited number of slots for this program are available. Tuition covers all materials and supplies. Tuition: $10.00 for Members, $15.00 for Non-Members. Contact EPMAEducation@elpasotexas.gov to schedule your Look & Do!
