The MUSEartspace transformation begins ... sorta

Well even though MUSEartspace isn't opening till June 24th, and even though we won't start renos till June 1st, we have started the transformational process.

On a whim I asked Natasha Kudishkina if she would want to paint me a muse mural while in town.
I didn't realize she was en route to Charlottetown already. And so when I got a message back from Natasha agreeing to do it I was thrilled.

A chance meeting right in front of the future site of MUSEartspace would seal the deal and we made plans for her to come to my house the next day.

Within a day Natasha created the MUSE!!!!! Isn't she gorgeous! What a fantastic way for this journey to begin.

MUSEkids summer camps

MUSEartspace will be putting on MUSEkids summer camps - a whole summer of week long day camps for boys and girls ages 8 to 12. Activities include photography, film making, animation, painting, drawing, storytelling, song writing, Yoga and much much more. Anyone who books their child in before June 1 is going to get $10 off of EVERY week they book. Each camper will get an organic cotton t-shirt, a journal and the Yoga daycampers will even get a yoga mat.

Renee Laprise, owner of MUSEartspace, is programming and running the summer camps. Renee has a certificate for children's yoga instruction from Club Yoga of Ottawa and has also been in the film and television industry for over 15 years as the owner of Mugisha Enterprises Inc. Kelly Clements-Gennis of Think.Feel.Be. ( will show the kids how healthy eating can be creative. And to top it off, all the way in from Scotland, master storyteller Michael Williams ( will be on hand to teach and perform for the kids!!! There's a lot happening at these camps so TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! Class size is small to make sure each camper has a truly magical summer experience. And make sure to book BEFORE JUNE 1st to get the $10 per week savings. For more information and a MUSEkids camp pamphlet please go to

MUSE on the rise

Hi people!!!

I'm so excited to see Muse Artspace coming to life already. Here's the press release to give you an idea of what we are about.

For immediate release:

MUSEartspace to open its doors at 211 Euston St. in Charlottetown on June 24th, 2010.

MUSEartspace is a relaxed and inviting environment designed to inspire people of all ages to explore and express their most creative selves. An art gallery, lounge, store and artist workshop flow together in this bright open concept studio naturally lit by entire wall of windows. With all the art on the walls and all the green on the sills, a trip into the MUSEartspace is a lovely way to spend some time enjoying art or even making it yourself!

Our grand opening will be on June 24th from 5pm till 9pm and we'll be celebrating with our first exhibition by artist Benjamin Allain. Benjamin will be making art right in the artspace on June the 23rd so check in often at for updates. As the opening date approaches the radical transformation of the current space into MUSEartspace will be documented and posted daily to the website. It's going to be a stunning makeover!
