Advanced Studio Art

OCT 6 – NOV 24
4-5 PM ET

Recommended for ages 13-18

The Advanced Studio Art 8-week semester is designed to help students build the necessary foundational skill-set to ignite creativity and develop portfolio-ready artwork. Weekly, 60 minute online instruction places emphasis on technique, concept development and a polished sketchbook, where students will complete a series of artworks in drawing, painting, printing and sculpture. Virtual classes meet every Tuesday at 4 PM ET for eight weeks and must be purchased as an entire 8-week session.

The Bass’ Advanced Studio Art program is aimed at both high school and college prospective art students. The teaching artist will mentor students and provide an individualized learning experience for optimal portfolio and audition preparedness. Students will create 3-5 portfolio ready artworks within this period and received a carefully crafted art package with registration containing all needed materials for all eight classes. 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. Register today!
