Meet Miss Patti...
Patti Hupp is educator, musician, actress, and mother of 3.
A graduate of The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she has graced stages in NY and LA. Her passions led her to a career in music while producing events for children's charities. (Boston/NY AIDS Rides, www.varietyny.org, www.songsoflove.org)
In 2005, she opened The Children's Center of Goldens Bridge, an art and music center for preschoolers, where Miss Patti's ArtSmart was born. With the help of her music producer husband, Kevin Hupp, Patti released her children's cd, "Feeling Groovy with Miss Patti" in 2009. They have just released her follow up EP "Pop Art" featuring songs about Monet, Rodin & Lichtenstein!
On the set of ArtSmart TV!
Shot on location at The Katonah Art Center this past February, ArtSmart TV is based on the classes Patti has been teaching in NY & CT for the past 7 years. The first 2 episodes feature her students recreating famous works of Picasso & Rodin! Like ArtSmart TV on Facebook to stay updated on the national premiere of Miss Patti's ArtSmart.
Miss Patti's ArtSmart combines famous art & music to introduce children to the masters of the art world. Children recreate works by such artists as Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and more, in a fun and easy way while building confidence and self esteem.
What people are saying...
Miss Patti has worked for us for the past 5 years (at least). She is a huge asset to
our programs who I keep re-hiring over and over again! She teaches dance, art
and music classes and DJs for us. She is wonderful to work with and always prompt, organized, well prepared and great with the public. I would highly recommend
her (unless it conflicts with our programs ha ha). ~ Dana Mayclim

"Patti is an outstanding educator-talented, creative, passionate.
My daughter can still tell you not only the techniques of how she made each piece but also what artist and style the children were emulating.
More important, Patti is nurturing and loving. She is kind and affectionate but not condescending, and the children love both her and her classes.
She combines music, art and movement in a warm, supportive environment,
and the children thrive." -Lee. G., parent
"I purchased your album on iTunes over the weekend. We love it.
Nico cries when I turn it off. I have to replay it again and again.
Thank you for bringing joy to my family!"

"I just want to tell you that she had the best time today. When I picked her up
this afternoon she couldn't stop telling me about what you guys did and how nice
you were and all the things that you taught her already...in 2 hours!
I wanted to say thank you very much for a great first experience.
