Bass in the Classroom: multi-session visits and outreach programs
This thee- part program allows for deep exploration and investigation of art themes. Using the IDEA@thebass design thinking process, teachers and museum educators will work together to decide on an appropriate theme that coincides with school curriculum. By discussing the theme over 3 sessions; pre and post classroom visits and a museum visit, students will sharpen their visual literacy, critical thinking and reasoning, information literacy, collaboration, self-direction and invention skills. Pre-K-12th grade.
Pre-visit session: Prepare your students for their trip to the museum with an in-school, pre-visit lesson before your tour. These lessons include an inquiry-based discussion about objects from the museum’s collection to support age-appropriate learning. This pre-visit will include one forty-five-minute interactive presentation led by a museum educator and an introduction to the Bass Museum and its current exhibits.
Buses can drop off students at the the Miami Beach Regional Branch located at 227 22nd Street, Miami Beach
Please have a representative of your group check in with your guide and Bass Museum staff in the lobby of the Miami Beach Regional Library. Do not unload the bus until your guide instructs you to do so.
