Through an Urban Arts partnership with the Flats Gallery, the College of Mount St. Joseph is featuring a 2014 Summer Art Studio taught by professional art educators in area schools. It is open to any student in first through eighth grades. 

The Summer Art Studio offers classes in a week-long format. Each week has a different theme, ranging from drawing, painting and mixed media, to fabric design, sculpture and bookmaking. The two-hour classes will take place at the Flats Gallery in Price Hill at the intersection of Price and Hawthorne Avenues across from Holy Family Church. The week culminates on the Friday of each week with an art show for all to enjoy.

The sessions will be taught by local art teachers including Stacey Battoclette, Mary Baumgartner, Sherry Fuller, Amanda Greenwald, Jackie McClure, and Kiersten Smith. 

The materials are included in the cost of the program which is $90 for students in grades three through eight; and $75 per student entering first and second grades.

Only the first 12 paid registration applications will be accepted per section.  Upon acceptance, you will receive an email to confirm your registration has been processed. Please bring a copy of your confirmation email to check in at the door on the Monday of your Art Studio at the Flats Gallery. The Flats Gallery reserves the right to cancel the studio if the class does not fill.
