Spare Parts founded the MINI ART MUSEUM (MAM) to bring the fine arts museum experience to schools and the community. This opportunity for schools seeks to eliminate bus fees & complicated scheduling & simply brings the fine art museum experience to classrooms and events, like yours!


The MINI ART MUSEUM fine arts experience at your school, event or location includes:

  • installation of the MINI ART MUSEUM
  • docent-led tour of the MINI ART MUSEUM
  • magnifying glasses and gallery guides for visitors to view artwork
  • art-making workshop inspired by the exhibition(s)
  • mini gift shop with items on sale between $1-$5 to benefit museum operations (optional)

The MINI ART MUSEUM curriculum, for grades 1-12, help meet the Perception, Creative Expression/Performance, Historical/Cultural Heritage & Critical Evaluation TEKS for Art; Levels K-12. This curriculum can be adapted for use in other content areas to enhance and improve critical, divergent and analytical thinking.
