Manara Academy Elementary students proudly display their works of art created as a culmination of the year-long Lotus Learners program. In this program, students utilized museum-based critical thinking routines, art projects, and yoga inspired movement as entry points to creative learning about works of art from the Crow Collection’s permanent collection.
The Crow Collection’s Asia Connect program explored the concept of home with students at Heart House, a nonprofit that provides safety, education, and opportunity to refugee and underprivileged children. Join us for an exhibition of the students’ works of art and a celebration of their accomplishments.

Now in its third year, the Breathe program invites local veterans and first responders to gather for monthly workshops centered around the practices of Qigong and art-making. In April, join Army veteran Jacob Valdez to explore photography. Valdez is a combat wounded veteran who served in the United States Army for 13 years. During his many deployments around the world he found creative refuge in photography and today he continues to travel and create dynamic digital photographs that capture obscure and overlooked details in the world around us. Participants will work together to capture moments in the city and in nature outside of the museum (weather permitting). Phone cameras will work for the photography activity, but you are welcome to bring a personal camera to use if you would like! In May, you will use these photos to create a multi-media collage.
This month’s qigong practice will focus on the third of eight principles: Minding the Breath. The Crow Collection is proud to partner with SimplyAware to offer quality qigong training for each workshop. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the practice of qigong involves simple movement to improve breathing, posture, and mental focus. Learn more about Qigong with the video below of SimplyAware instructor Chris Bouguyon demonstrating the Golden Ball practice.
LOGISTICS: Due to most of the museum being under construction, this workshop will take place in the Crow Collection’s offices on the 35th floor of the Trammell Crow Center. Upon arrival, please meet in the Trammell Crow Center Lobby. The Crow Collection will validate for parking in the Trammell Crow Center Parking Garage, so be sure to bring your parking ticket with you. For parking instructions, click here.
