Programs are free but space is limited and advanced registration is required. Registration link to be posted on this page soon.

Studio and Share: 2-5 PM
All area teens are invited to our Nasher Teen Meetups. This session is called Studio and Share. Working on your portfolio? Need a focused, supportive, inclusive space to work on projects? Join fellow teen artists for an open studio and art sharing session at the Nasher Museum. Bring what you’ve been working on or start something new. Limited materials will be available. Float in and out of the galleries for inspiration. At 3 PM, join Nasher Teen Council members and Durham-based artist Brittany Carlson for a facilitated art sharing session followed by more open studio time to implement new ideas. Register online.
