Virtual K-12 Teacher Resources
Gather a Virtual Curriculum at the Nasher's Words & Pictures website
The Nasher Museum and Durham Public Schools teachers recently collaborated to produce a number of K-2 lessons and downloadable resources that integrate visual arts into the language arts curriculum. These resources, which address Common Core standards and engage 21st Century Skills, are available online for free, thanks in part to a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Reading Black Art: A Bibliography is an online resource that will aid in a better understanding of and engagement with work by Black artists in the Nasher Museum collection. It is a non-exhaustive bibliography on art, art history and visual culture of the African Diaspora. Books for young readers are included in the bibliography. This curated selection presents a wide array of instructive texts and will be updated monthly.
Activities for Teachers & Families
Find below lesson plans featuring works from the Nasher’s collection. Please check back on this page as these will be added to most Thursdays.
These lesson plans can be used by teachers or parents, and feature suggestions for careful looking, guided conversation, and further work inspired by select works of art. Each plan is available as a two-sided PDF that can be printed for schools that distribute hard copies of materials.
Please email email@example.com with any suggestions for improvements that could be made to better serve your family and/or your students.
