Mexic-Arte Museum’s Media Mixers are a series of informal after hours art-making and discussion classes for all skill levels on the last Wednesday of every other month. Media Mixers are a unique opportunity for members of the community to get up close and personal with professional artists and their work while learning art making techniques. Media Mixers are open to the public with the price of admission and are always free to members. Admission includes all materials for the workshop as well as refreshments. Media Mixers are the perfect environment to wind down, network with fellow creatives, and discover new ways to express yourself.
The Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education Department is dedicated to education and enrichment through art and culture and believes that discussing and creating art are vital to personal and professional development. We facilitate programs to fit the needs, abilities and interests of community groups and organizations. MAM works with a variety of mission-driven community organizations throughout the Austin area to provide professional development and workshop opportunities, corporate membership and portable exhibitions. We also provide digital content to corporate entities as an opportunity to promote cultural, historical and artistic awareness within their company. If you and your organization are interested in benefiting from an arts and culture based outreach program, we would love to hear from you!
Portable Exhibitions Opportunities
The MAM creates a variety of educational materials and portable exhibits that can be rented and used on site at your organization or business for cultural and diversity enrichment and awareness.
Hands on, art education activities for team building can be coordinated through the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education Department. The education staff can provide engaging lessons tailored around culturally relevant subjects or events that are customized for a wide ranged audience.
Each week the Mexic-Arte Museum hosts Free Family Sundays. We invite everyone to join and explore the museum and get a free tour at 2:00pm or 3:00pm. Tours in Spanish are always available upon request. The Mexic-Arte Museum also holds Family Days on the last Sunday of every other month.
Family Day Workshops

Family Day Workshops are held bimonthly on the last Sunday of the month when exhibits are up. Museum Education Associates will lead make-and-take activities inspired by artwork in the exhibits. These drop-in, informal workshops are for guests of all ages and abilities and free to attend from 12–5pm.
Located in the heart of downtown Austin, Mexic-Arte Museum seeks university students to participate in internships for academic credit and educational enrichment. Spring, summer, and fall internships are unpaid and run for 12 weeks with a minimum commitment of 10-15 hours per week during office hours (Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-5pm). Mexic-Arte Museum also encourages interns to attend its Public Programs.
Mexic-Arte Museum recognizes the importance of interns and seeks flexible, positive, organized, and self-motivated candidates that can work both independently and collaboratively in a professional setting. Interns will apply their creativity, critical thinking skills, and enthusiasm to a wide range of projects under the mentorship of Mexic-Arte Museum professionals.
