Connect with your community through dynamic exhibitions, diverse classes, and direct creative action at Art League Houston.
Located in the heart of Montrose in an eye-catching angular building, Art League Houston is one of the city’s oldest non-profit art organizations and has become a staple for contemporary visual art exhibitions and community classes.
Founded in 1948, the institution was established by a group of sixteen artists as a member organization whose mission was to design a building that would house a studio workshop and gallery for the continual exhibition of artwork by local artists.
Today, ALH keeps with its core model, but embraces contemporary approaches offering modern curatorial programming, community-building through art education, and outreach to the under-served communities.
Affordable Artist-Led Classes
Each year, over 1,000 adult students of diverse backgrounds, skill levels, and ages enroll in over 100 classes and workshops annually at the Art League School.
Led by professional artist instructors, classes and workshops take place in three fully equipped studio spaces where students work in painting, drawing, watercolor, printmaking, mixed media, collage, jewelry, and other media.
To ensure individual attention and to accommodate varying skill levels, courses are maintained with a limited number of students.
There are no prerequisites for enrollment and courses are offered at an affordable cost to allow broad access to anyone interested.
Students also have access to exhibitions, lectures, public programs, and artist talks offered throughout the year to further their training as artists.
