Map Makers & History Shapers
We will celebrate history shapers known and unsung, and chart our own course of places real and imagined using the power of our voice, feet, and imaginations.
At BAX, we foster creativity and encourage playful exploration in a positive and nurturing environment. Our Summer Arts Program (SAP) draws from our year-round education programs to provide young artists with opportunities to explore different forms of mixed media art and performance around a specific themed week thoughtfully designed for active and fun engagement. Arts Specialists teach daily workshops, while a well-trained, creative staff supports a healthy balance of fun indoor (at the BAX Building in spacious, well ventilated studios) and outdoor (at the Old Stone House at Washington Park/JJ Byrne Playground) play, performance, and art-making activities. Children entering 1st through 5th grade participate in two different groups, organized by age: NanoBAXers (rising 1st and 2nd graders) and MegaBAXers (rising 3rd to 5th graders).
