GALLERY GUIDES – Education–based, gallery guides are generated for each exhibit. The guides—offered both in the gallery and online—provide the general public with a closer look
at the exhibition, touching on subjects ranging from history to artist achievement to social relevance. Each guide is preserved in the museum archive and acts as a permanent testament to the history of the museum.

TEACHER WORKSHOPS – Each year, The Contemporary, Blanton Museum of Art, and Mexic–Arte Museum team up to present the Summer Teacher Institute. This annual teacher workshop utilizes the concepts and processes of contemporary art in the classroom. Through fun and practical workshops over two days at multiple institutions, teachers gain the tools they
need to bring art alive in the classroom.

TOURS – Guided tours of Mexic–Arte Museum exhibitions provide students and teachers with a unique cultural experience. They generate a greater awareness of Mexican and Latin American heritage. Bilingual tours are available.
