Nasher Sculpture Center Announces The Great Create Family Fundraising Event Benefiting Nasher Education Programs Sunday, April 24, 2016 from 1-4 pm.
The Great Create: By Artists. For Kids is a celebration of youth art education and appreciation featuring a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on art activities and workshops in Nasher Garden led by artists from around the world, as well as live entertainment and kid-friendly food. The program is geared toward children 12 and under, and teens ages 13 and up are invited to serve as “Art Ambassadors” to assist the artists and younger attendees.
