Spring Break at the Amon Carter

Artmaking and more

Unlock your family’s creativity this spring break! Join us at the Amon Carter as we explore The Carter’s Greatest Hits. Bring the entire family to the museum each day during spring break to visit your favorite artworks on view. While in the galleries, you can experiment with fun sketching activities, create your own work of art, and take a peek at our construction progress!

In addition to the fun in the galleries, join our Carter Community Artist Christopher Blay as he creates an installation piece in the museum’s auditorium. Come back each day to add your mark and see the progress of the project!

Central Market food truck will be on site from noon to 2 p.m. with family friendly picnic options for purchase before you join in the fun inside.

This program is best for all ages.

Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Please join the Amon Carter and the Art+Feminism campaign at an edit-a-thon to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of gender, feminism, and the arts.

The museum’s edit-a-thon will focus on women in American art. Editors will work in the library reading room and have access to the library's near-comprehensive collection of research materials on American art.

All levels of editors are welcome, from beginner to advanced. Depending on your experience and time commitment, your contribution can range from correcting a few spelling and grammatical errors to creating a new article. We'll have experienced Wikipedians on hand to guide participants through all parts of the editing process. You only need to bring a laptop, and we’ll supply the rest! We’ll also provide snacks.

For more information, including training resources, visit our meetup page.
