Spend your summer making art at the Bass Museum of Art! Summer art classes for children ages 4–12 are taught by professional art educators. Classes include explorations of the museum’s galleries, adventures in Collins Park, and visual and performing art activities. Each week the children will be using painting, drawing and 3-D design to explore the theme of the week.
Classes take place from 9am to 3:30pm in the Dzine Cafe, the Lindemann Family Creativity Center, our courtyard and selected sites around Collins Park and the beach. Children are grouped according to age with individual attention given to all children, from beginner to advanced level. Campers must bring their own lunch and snack for supervised lunch and snack periods. After Care is available from 4pm-5:30pm daily for an extra fee.
