Take an adventure with the Bass Museum of Art in painting, drawing and 3-D design during the Bass Museum of Art’s 10-week summer art camp. The camps are geared for creative-minded children where budding artists can explore various types of aesthetic to become fully immersed in the arts. Divided into two different camps – one for ages 4-6 and one for ages 7-12, each camp is taught by a certified art instructor exploring a different theme weekly. Sign up for a day, a week or the whole summer, and with scholarship assistance available and a sibling discount, the whole family can join in on the fun.

The bass museum of art is located in Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art offers a dynamic year-round calendar of exhibitions exploring the connections between contemporary art and works of art from its permanent collection of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, sculpture, textiles, Apulian Vessel Gallery and Egyptian Gallery. Artists’ projects, educational programs, lectures, events, concerts and free family days complement the works on view. Founded in 1963 when the City of Miami Beach accepted a collection of Renaissance and Baroque works of art from collectors John and Johanna Bass, the collection was housed in an Art Deco building designed in 1930 by Russell Pancoast. Architect Arata Isozaki designed an addition to the museum between 1998 and 2001 that doubled its size from 15,000 to 35,000 square feet. Most recently, the museum selected internationally acclaimed Oppenheim Architecture + Design to lead its first phase of design and renovation tied to the 2010 completion of Miami Beach’s Collins Park. Oppenheim redesigned and relocated the museum’s arrival area to flow from and into the new park on Collins Avenue. For more information, please visit
