The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University launches its Nasher Creates: Kid Studio this Thursday in Durham.
The program runs from 10 a.m. to noon, most Thursdays, through Aug. 23. They're best for families with kids ages 5 to 10 and are free with admission, which is $5 for adults and free for kids ages 15 and under. It's on our #100thingsWRAL list of summer fun!
Here's the schedule:
June 21: Create bubble wrap paintings inspired by Cycle X, by artist Dan Walsh, from the current exhibition A Material Legacy.
June 28: Create collage portraiture inspired by Decompositioning by Jeff Sonhouse and Family Tree by Wangechi Mutu from the current exhibition A Material Legacy.
July 12: Create tape paintings inspired by the mural Shadow and Light (For Julian Francis Abele) by Odili Donald Odita.
July 19: Create Picasso-style clay portraits inspired by Head of a Woman (Tête de femme) by Pablo Picasso.
July 26: Create cyanotypes inspired by White Water Nash by Burk Uzzle, from the current exhibition Burk Uzzle: Southern Landscapes.
Aug. 2: Create paper plate makes inspired by Hemlet Masks by the Igbo People (Nigeria), from the current exhibition The Collection Galleries.
Aug. 9: Create African instruments inspired by African xylophone and thumb pianos, from the current exhibition The Collection Galleries.

Aug. 23: Create pottery (no-bake coil pots) inspired by Mayan cylindrical vessels, from the current exhibition The Collection Galleries.
I'm told the Saturday sketching in the galleries events also can be fun for kids.
