Pint-Sized Pablos

If your children thrive on painting outside the lines, this may be early signs of Inner Picasso Syndrome. (Quick test for symptoms: mrpicassohead.com/create.) The art world declared the Spanish genius to be history's greatest child prodigy, but he disagreed, "There are no child prodigies in painting...[only] the genius of childhood." During his 77-year career, Picasso created not only masterpieces, but art movements and techniques that turned form and interpretation (quite literally) on its ear—all by invoking his childlike spontaneity and wonder. Picasso is ready to release your 6-to-14-year-old child's inner artist at Fort Worth's Kimbell Museum's Children's Workshop: Elastic Portraits 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Materials fee is $15 per child with no charge for parent (maximum three children per adult). Call 817-332-8451, ext. 297 or visit kimbellart.org.
Sat., June 23, 10 a.m.
