How long do we have to complete the course?
Scouts BSA members receive a timeline that allows for 1-2 week completion rate. Scouts are required to watch the initial orientation and to book a 15 min wrap - up video conference with a guardian present. Scout appointments are offered based on availability Tues & Thurs between 4-6pm each week of AMB and need to be booked no later that 30 days from the start of the course.
Are previous drawing and painting lessons required?
Previous art lessons are not required. You will be guided with self-paced pre-recored lessons, and how to use your materials with confidence. I love teaching and creating from my art studio, while helping them build their art skills and knowledge.
Are art supplies included?
Supplies are not included. Explore a variety of 2-D mediums such as pastels, watercolors, and illustration with markers on cardstock or watercolor paper. Complete Art Supply list available in online course.

"Ms Mucha provides a great escape virtually allowing my scout to stay on track with her professional step-by-step online course. She is great about providing a weekly progress reports. My scout really enjoyed the art lessons."
“Our Daughter is very much enjoying your class and cannot wait for more fun artwork! She continues drawing and coloring at home too.”
"Our son is doing well in your class, and he is very excited about sharing with us the projects he’s worked on. He’s even shown more (than previously), interest in working on projects at home."
As an Artist that happens to also be a scout leader with an operating studio and art gallery from home, I am excited to offer virtual art merit badges using a self paced step-by-step teaching format. Lessons are tailored to help scouts succeed, while guiding them in a friendly and secure virtual art studio. **A guardian must be present during individual badge meetings.**
