The Bass Museum of Art, one of Miami Beach’s key cultural landmarks, will introduce and host an Inventive Art Class this Sunday, November 13 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., as part of its successful IDEA@thebass program. Students ages 5 – 11 will work as a team with a parent or guardian to solve a design challenge. This month’s challenge, “Things That Fly,” will pay tribute to the Wright Brothers and provide students the opportunity to invent their own flying machine. Class begins promptly at 2 p.m. and has a series of planned activities till 4 p.m.

IDEA@thebass is an interactive program that was developed to promote design-thinking skills and support creativity and personal expression. Students learn how to draw, construct and take photographs from the museum’s experienced art teachers. The Inventive Art Classes are held on the second Sunday of every month and feature various design challenges meant for children and their parents or guardians to complete as a team. This month’s “Things That Fly” challenge encourages students to make their own kite or paper airplane using glue, paper and paint. The museum’s Inventive Art Class is a new addition to its IDEA@thebass program and is a complementary initiative to the Bass’ popular Family Day which takes place the last Sunday of every month.

Inventive Art Classes as limited to 30 students and advance registration is required. Admission to the classes is free for members and $10 for non-members.

About the Bass Museum of Art
Located in Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art offers a dynamic year-round calendar of exhibitions presenting contemporary art, works of art from its permanent collection of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, sculpture and textiles and newly opened Egyptian Gallery. Artist’s projects, educational programs, lectures, 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 that doubled its size from 15,000 to 35,000 square feet between 1998 and 2002. 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 highly anticipated 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
