What's Included

What to Bring

Theme

“Time Travelers: Exploring Our Past, Present, and Future” is an anthropological study of the evolution of Bahamian visual arts through significant periods in our history. Each week focuses on a different period: the time of Arawaks, colonialism, modern times, and the future. Campers will participate in period-specific experiences and create artwork reminiscent of the time they are exploring, giving them the opportunity to add their voice and vision to the communities of both our ancestors and descendants. 

As we time travel to our collective pasts together, we will answer core anthropological questions about ourselves, using the visual arts as a tool to create pieces that explain, dissect, combine, and thrill. Campers will complete this journey equipped with an arsenal of resources and the power to design the future they want to see—one that is full of promise.

Would you like to give a camper the opportunity to explore different avenues of creativity and expand their knowledge of visual art in a safe, inclusive environment? Would you like to contribute to a child’s social, communicative, emotional, and academic development? We're proud to introduce Art for All, a program that invites you to support children in need of tuition assistance for Summer Camp. 

Art for All gives you the opportunity to help a camper who would not be able to participate in this experience because of financial challenges. To donate, visit our museum store to make your contribution. We appreciate all donations, and no amount is too small.
