About the Spring Break Arts Program (SBAP)

At BAX, we foster creativity and encourage playful exploration in a positive and nurturing environment. Our Spring Break Arts Program (SBAP) 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, well ventilated studios) and outdoor play (at the nearby Old Stone House in Washington Park/JJ Byrne Playground), performance, and art-making activities. 

Program Groups & Ages

Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade participate in two different groups, organized by age: NanoBAXers (K to 2nd graders) and MegaBAXers (2nd to 5th graders).
