Virtual Summer Art Camps

JUNE 8 – AUGUST 14
MONDAY – FRIDAY

Ages 4-6 | 9:30 – 11 AM

Enroll your young artist in Virtual Summer Art Camps with The Bass! This all-new, all-inclusive program features live, daily video instruction with museum educators for interactive learning, with simple step-by-step directions and packaged art materials for each lesson plan. Campers will enjoy fun, memorable and unique hands-on art experiences, while virtually socializing with their peers and discovering different artists, artistic mediums, techniques and more.

Each day, our trained teachers guide 90-minute tutorials featuring painting, drawing and 3D design projects that explore the weekly theme with two art-filled, virtual camps: Little Ones Art Camp (ages 4-6) and Kids Art Camp (ages 7-12). At the end of each week, family and friends are invited to attend the virtual student exhibition. Each week features a carefully crafted art package containing all needed materials for that week’s virtual camp. Art materials can be picked-up from the museum, shipped or sent via courier service!*
