Not every kid is headed to school this August, but that doesn’t mean they can’t go to class.

With the MFAH’s collection for inspiration, young ones can touch, paint and explore with non-toxic materials to create masterpieces of their own.

August 22 from 6-9: Frida and Diego’s Wedding

Celebrate Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s nuptials with Cuchara. If you don’t already know how, learn to play Frida-themed Lotería and enjoy themed drinks while you celebrate the esteemed artist couple. For $40, you’ll receive a card, a wine or beer, and access to appetizers. Costumes are encouraged. Unibrows are optional.
