Today, the Miami Beach Bass Museum offered families free transportation and a tour of the museum as part of its “Arts and Literacy” program.
The seven week program provides creativity and literacy skills to strengthen families and communities. Families learn how to instill a love of reading in their child. Art projects are presented that enhance literacy.
At the end of the seven week family program, there is a tour of the Bass Museum.
Families toured the museum’s Egyptian gallery. Children also re-enacted the mythological story of Osiris, Isis, Horus, and Seth. They donned various Egyptian headdresses. Families visited Peter Marino’s “One Way” exhibition at the museum. At the end of the day, families were given gift bags and headed home.
The next free “Arts and Literacy” session starts March 7. There are various locations in Miami for the workshops.
