2019 Rock Art Academy in El Paso

In partnership with the El Paso Museum of Archaeology, the El Paso Archaeological Society, and Texas Parks and Wildlife – Hueco Tanks State Park


The 2019 Rock Art Academy is a two-day Texas Archeology Academy that explores regional rock art archeological sites, Mogollon archeological sites, and how investigators use this information to interpret the human and natural histories of an area. Classroom sessions for the Academy will be held at the El Paso Museum of Archaeology with field sessions at Hueco Tanks State Park on February 16-17, 2019.

Learning to record and interpret rock art can illuminate both how a site was used by people and how people interacted with the natural environment and cultural influences. This Academy will include classroom instruction, and field trips where participants will have the opportunity to participate in a rock art recording session at Hueco Tanks State Park. The instructor team includes experienced rock art specialists and archeologists who specialize in Mogollon culture.

Previous participants in Archeology Academies answered a survey as follows: "what I learned - how archeology works; loved the tours; and that I definitely want to learn more!"  They also explained: "what I liked - it was easy, step by step; the wealth of information, quality of manual and presentation; and nice people."

Registration will open at noon on October 28, 2018

The registration fee ($100) plus TAS membership is for two days instruction with refreshments and lunch; it includes a digital manual. A certificate of participation will be awarded to attendees. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit is available for teachers as approved by the Texas State Board of Education Certification (SBEC). No previous archeological experience is needed to enjoy these sessions.
