About the Spring Break Arts Program

At BAX, we foster creativity and encourage playful exploration in a positive and nurturing environment. Our Spring Break Arts Program draws from our year-round education programs to provide young artists with opportunities to explore different forms of performing and mixed media arts around a specific daily theme 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 studios) and outdoor play (at the nearby Old Stone House in Washington Park/JJ Byrne Playground), performance, and art-making activities. At the end of each week, families are sent photos/videos with descriptions of the weekly activities and culminating shares.
