For the twelfth consecutive year, Miami Children’s Museum is proud to present ArtKids at Art Basel Miami Beach. From mixed media to building blocks and beyond, a variety of art exploration stations will be available for budding young artists to create their own original works of art.
This year again features an additional program for ArtKids at Art Basel. For the second year MCM in partnership with Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation will offer the opportunity for participating children there to work with a renowned artist. This year will feature Patrick Rowe teaching the art of mobile print making. Patrick started Mobile Print Power in March 2013. With a background in printmaking and public art, Patrick wanted to bring silkscreen printmaking into public space. He is also interested in art education and works with the group as they develop strategies to exchange knowledge with others in public space. Children are also invited to join Patrick Rush on Sunday, November, 30 from 4 to 5:30 PM at the Miami Children’s Museum 980 MacArthur Causeway on Watson Island for a session to create their own print mobiles.
ArtKids welcomes children ages 4 – 12 to stay in the room for up to 3 hours at a time; children younger than 4 may also visit with a caretaker. ArtKids is supervised and staffed by Miami Children’s Museum Educators, volunteers, Donald Lambert and students and teachers from the New World School of the Arts and selected artists.
