Art turns green! Come visit Texas Discovery Gardens for a guided hour-long program that explores the art installations, both temporary and permanent that are scattered throughout the Gardens. Students will use their senses to explore our Gardens, and two Gallery spaces. The Program also includes entrance into our Tropical Butterfly House, where over 500 butterflies from all over the world will give your students plenty of inspiration for their next artwork. Each garden tour is custom-created based on grade-level, and your needs.

Students Will

  • Use their five senses to explore the natural world
  • Interpret their experiences into future artwork
  • Compare and contrast the different artists whose art is focused here at the Gardens
