“Breaking down barriers and empowering communities through creative  expression”

 

Vision 

At HTX Art, we envision a community in which everyone has access to the knowledge, inspiration, comfort, enrichment, and cultural complexity of the arts. As the regional collaboration point and hub for arts in North East Houston, we will be a leading force in nurturing art in all its forms for the people, organizations, and businesses of this area, both as a presenter of the arts and as an inspiration for the arts to help people flourish in our community. 

Values 

  • We believe that the lives of all people and the quality of life in the communities in which they live are enhanced by the presence of the arts. 

  • We believe that partnership with other organizations is critical to the sustainability and enhancement of arts and cultural experiences in our community. 

  • We believe that all people, businesses and organizations deserve access to arts and cultural experiences in their lives and the benefits that they provide. 

  • We believe that the presence of the arts in our community is a powerful economic development asset to recruit and retain community members and visitors.

Roni

Hola! I am Roni, an experienced artist, mother and CEO of HTX ART, a creative enterprise that provides access to art in Houston’s underserved communities.

I am widely known for Houston's Art Bus. I transformed an old school bus into a mobile art studio that provides creative opportunities though out Harris County. I was honored to receive a grant from HEB, Texas singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson and comedian Amy Poehler.  

As an accomplished artist with more than 10 years of experience in teaching and painting, I'm responsible for painting several large murals in Houston. It is my mission to provide a multigenerational art experience for communities across Houston. Through this mission I have established; Art in the HEART, a community art center in the Eastex Jensen community. To foster creativity and provide resources to promote mental health, personal growth and quality time for families and seniors.

Noe

Hi! My name is Noe D. Moreno. I am an avid book reader and enjoy music while I read.

I love seeing the kids proud faces when they create something. Confidence is an extremely important thing to have. Making art helps build up confidence and is a huge factor in a child's development.

I'm the sounding board for my parents. If they have an idea for a project or event, we'll talk about it and plan talk logistics.

Norb Jr. 

Hello!

My name is Norberto Moreno. 

I’m 14 years old and the 3rd born out of my 4 brothers.I love to spend time outside and go on bike rides.

Something magical to me is the look of shock and excitement on the children’s faces when they enter the Art Bus.

I’ve been picking up the role of marketing, commonly asked for help or my thoughts on a design or post. It has been a lot of fun to bounce ideas off my mom and help create better designs and promotional material.
