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

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 other cultural influences. The instructor team includes experienced rock art specialists and archaeologists who specialize in Mogollon culture. No previous archaeological experience is needed to enjoy these sessions.

Registration and TAS membership are required to attend. The registration fee of $100 plus TAS membership includes two days of instruction with refreshments and lunch, and a digital manual. A certificate of participation will also be awarded to attendees. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit is available for teachers as approved by the Texas State Board of Education Certification (SBEC). The Museum is not involved in the registration process.
