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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions for improvements that could be made to better serve your family and/or your students.
