My child is not quite 5 (or is 13) can I still register?

Our projects are designed for ages 5 and up. Sometimes it is harder for the little ones because they do need to use their motor skills and be able keep up with the group as far as skill level and emotional readiness. They should be able to sit with the group, understand instructions, and execute the design.

If you would like to enroll your child a few months before they turn 5, we will accept the registration but if either the teacher or yourself decides that it is too much for him/her then we cannot give a refund. 

You know your child the best and if you think he can keep up with the group then we will try it out.  You will have to change their birthdate at registration as our system only allows for age appropriate registrations.

My child is 13 – Our projects are designed for children ages 5-12 and our programs tend to have more of the younger children than the older ones. If you would like to register your 13 year old, please note that he/she will be the oldest in the group. You know your child the best and if you think he/she will be happy in that environment then we will try it out.  You will have to change their birthdate at registration as our system only allows for age appropriate registrations.

I work for UM, is there a discount for my child?

There is! Please email us at artcampinfo@beauxartsmiami from your UM email address and we will send you a 10% discount code. This code is also available to Lowe Art Museum Members.
