You may bring snacks for your child. We have a refrigerator and a microwave in the art studio.
At the beginning of the class we will work on one new acrylic painting each day. Every day your child may pick which painting and ideas they want to paint. We will help them come up with ideas and teach them techniques and guide them in creating their masterpiece.
The canvas size will always be 16” x 20“ and we will provide all the supplies necessary. Normally the painting class last around three hours. All students are allowed to go at their own pace. And will receive one on one guidance from the teacher. Every day your child will come home with a brand new masterpiece that they have created by themselves.
Our teacher, Yvette, was trained in art at Northern Arizona University and has been a professional artist selling her work and teaching classes since 2003. Her art has hung in many prestigious art galleries around the world. A mother herself she understands the importance of safety and education. We encourage you to come to the Art studio to meet her and checked out the classroom.
Once your child is done painting their masterpiece. They will take a short break followed by a tutoring session. Where we will work on the academic subjects you would like us to focus on. Because everyone’s needs are different we ask that you please provide us with books that your child can work on that is at their grade level. You may obtain free academic books at the Altoona Area Public Library. We recommend bringing one chapter book for reading, and another book such as math. We promise that each day your child will complete one chapter in each book that you provided us. We recommend students work 30 minutes in each subject. With a 10 minute break between each subject.
The cost of this program is $40 a day. In cases of illness, with a doctors note, you will be reimbursed if your child does not attend. Payment must be made no later than one week in advance. We recommend paying as soon as you can because every year this class sells out fast. There is a $10 fee to be placed on the waiting list.
For any questions please call the Motley Muse Art Studio at (814) 502-7805
During the end of August we will be exhibiting the students work at the UPMC Altoona Hospital. This opportunity is a great way to foster confidence in young artists. Students will have the opportunity to display their work which they may or may not choose to make for sale. Who knows maybe your child might make enough money at this exhibition that you will be reimbursed for the summer camp. Or you may choose to donate the UPMC Altoona Foundation. Which is a nonprofit that brightens the spirits of young children who are in need of the hospitals services.
