about art!

Volume 122
October, 2020

AYAM Mission Statement:  To provide opportunities for SBISD students and the Houston community to experience the art of diverse cultures, to understand the cultural and historical significance of art, and to develop critical thinking and viewing skills.
Welcome Back!
We are so glad to see students back in the hallways! A bit different but still moving forward with great attitudes. AYAM has really missed seeing everyone and hopes to be able to welcome you back to the museum very soon.
We wanted to let you know that after nine great years, Kathy and I have decided it's time for us to leave the museum. It has been such a joy getting to know so many families and community members over the years. We've had the privilege of watching families come back year after year and seeing the kids grow from the 2nd graders at field trips to becoming volunteers for us in high school. We are leaving the museum in great hands! Mary Tavaras, who many of you will know from leading our summer program and 1st Saturdays, along with Stacey Thomas, who also was very involved in teaching at our events, have both stepped up to take the museum to a whole new level.  They already have some exciting new ideas and we can't wait to see them in action. 
Thank you for all the support you have given to the museum through the years, it truly is a special place and resource for our community. Please, be on the lookout for upcoming events. Mary and Stacey are working on ideas to get you back at AYAM as soon as possible. 

Thanks again & take care!
Leann & Kathy
