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.

Itty-Bitty Art: Little Artists

Young Toddler Program

Artistic exploration can begin with the tiniest of hands. Bring your young toddler (ages 12–24 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Little hands will start to make art as Lindsay Koss, early childhood teacher, leads an art-making session inspired by the museum’s collection.

This introduction to artistic mediums allows toddlers to discover action, colors, textures, and to express themselves. Crayons, foam sheets, markers, paper, stamps, texture boards, and watercolors are a few toddler-friendly supplies that stimulate creativity while developing fine motor skills and encouraging cognitive development. Making art combines a sensory and emotional experience that fosters a passion for creative thinking and imagination!

Attendees may get messy;please dress accordingly!
