The Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) is responsible for organizing Educator Evening. Educator Evening provides an opportunity to offer educators information about select exhibitions and resources for cross-curriculum planning. The events are also an opportunity to celebrate those in the teaching profession as well as to promote the many services and resources available to them through the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso Museum of History, and El Paso Museum of Archeology. For more information please call MCAD at 915-541-4481 or email MCAD@elpasotexas.gov.
Keeping Connected E-Newsletter
EPMA provides a monthly electronic newsletter listing current and upcoming exhibitions, programs and events that may be of interest.

Be sure to include your name and district information.
Teacher Resource Library
The Meadows Library contains over 4,000 reference volumes focused on Art and Art History that are available by appointment for research and inspiration. The El Paso Museum of Art is a repository of educational materials about the history of Eastern and Western art drawn from the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. - Materials include video-tapes, DVDs, slides, and posters. Materials from the Resource Library may be checked out to educators in K-12 classrooms. Home school parents may also borrow materials for use in the home-classroom environment. Please schedule an appointment with the Education Department by calling 915.532.1707.
