Bucket of Art and Music (BAM!)                    

Originally developed for Kentucky Refugee Ministries Summer Camp at Home, the BAM! bucket is now available for everyone!

BAM! includes everything needed to make over 25 music and visual arts projects.  Developed by experienced  teaching artists Gregory Acker and Brenda Wirth, the bucket is an ideal stay-at-home exploration of the science of sound, different visual media, and a primer for creative use of everyday items. Each BAM! comes with a picture-guidebook for the projects and will pair with upcoming video support installments on this Sound Community webpage. Suitable for ages 4 and up.​​

Packaging and shipping included!
