Summer Camp Details for 2020

Multimedia Makeup Academy is on a mission to provide a fun, stress-free, collaborative atmosphere for young artists, ages 9-16, to build self-confidence, critical thinking, and entrepreneurial skills while fostering artistic talents and tendencies!

What You Need to Know About the Summer Camps

Each camp is $225 per week and runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm unless students have signed up for our EXTENDED PROGRAM!

Lunch will be provided daily. If students have any allergies or dietary restrictions we should know about, please let us know.
