Scholarships to The Bass’ Summer Art Camp are made possible thanks to funding from The Children’s Trust
On Thursday, June 21, 2018, City of Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber visited The Bass’ Summer Art Camp to recognize 40, five-week scholarships awarded by the museum to Miami-Dade children for the program, thanks to funding from The Children’s Trust. Emily Cardenas, Director of Communication for The Trust was also in attendance. The campers gave the Mayor a tutorial in the art making of origami and presented him with art projects they made earlier in the week.
Each art camp class is led by professional museum educators, teaching artists and certified Miami-Dade Public School art teachers. Projects are specially tailored for STEAM inspired learning, and incorporate sculpture, painting, design and more. For more information, please visit: www.thebass.org/artcamp.
The museum’s goal is to offer camp scholarships to the children of the community, regardless of their ability to pay. The Bass firmly believes that art-making is a catalyst for creativity and growth. The museum accepts ongoing donations towards the scholarship fund. To give, please visit: www.thebass.org/scholarshipfund.
Scholarship recipients are selected through an application process and receive five weeks of tuition-free summer art camp at The Bass, along with transportation. The Bass runs art camps to coincide with MDPS breaks, including two weeks in winter and one week in spring. Through donors and funders like The Children’s Trust, The Bass aims to offer scholarship opportunities for each camp session.
