[Hybrid] Advanced Studio Art – Workshop Series

[Hybrid] Advanced Studio Art – Workshop Series

4 – 5 PM (ET)
Recommended for ages 13 – 18

This hybrid semester is designed to help students build the necessary foundational skill set to ignite creativity. Students will engage in virtual and in-person artmaking workshops to assist in portfolio preparedness. This 60-minute online instruction places emphasis on building foundational skillset and concept development. Bass Hybrid Studio Art Workshop is aimed to both high school and college prospective students. The teaching artist will mentor students and provide an individualized learning experience for optimal portfolio and audition readiness. Virtual classes meet every second Tuesday at 4 PM. In-person workshops will be held outdoors, every fourth Tuesday (materials will be provided).

The art session features a carefully crafted art package containing all needed. Art materials can be picked up from the museum or, for an additional fee, can be shipped throughout the U.S. via USPS or couriered locally via Uber Connect!

At the end of the session, family and friends are invited to attend the virtual student exhibition. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required. Please refer to our FAQs for additional information. For questions about virtual art sessions please email [email protected] or call 786-477-6003.

Preregistration is required as all participants will need to be screened. Only those approved will be allowed into the classroom space. Pro-rated cost is available for participants unable to attend all 7 classes and The Bass will be flexible with refunds and credits due to our stringent safety protocols.

In honoring the 25th anniversary of exhibiting artist Félix González-Torres’ death, art-making projects and themes for the spring season are drawn from the What Remains exhibition, on view through April 11, 2021.
