Thanks to a generous grant from the Quad City Arts Arts Dollar$ program, Rivermont Collegiate is able to waive tuition for Summer at Rivermont art courses for low income students.

Summer at Rivermont offers a variety of summer enrichment courses for preschool through 8th grade, which are open to the entire Quad City community and held on the Rivermont Collegiate campus in Bettendorf. Please note there is a limited amount of grant money and courses will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Those interested in these scholarships are strongly encouraged to enroll early. Though Summer at Rivermont offers courses in a wide variety of subjects, these scholarships are only applicable to art courses.

Art courses offered include Digital Photo Phrenzy (4th-8th grade, June 30-July 3), Mythical Clay Creatures (1st-3rd grade, July 7-18), Amazing Architecture in Clay (4th-6th grade, July 7-18), Screen Printing Extravaganza (3rd-8th grade, July 21-25), and Mural Masters (5th-8th grade, July 28-August 1).

For complete details on courses and scholarship eligibility and to enroll, visit or pick up an application at Rivermont Collegiate – 1821 Sunset Drive, Bettendorf, IA 52722.

Arts Dollar$ grants help fund art projects and programs that emphasize community involvement. Funding for Arts Dollar$ is provided by The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation, Illinois Arts Council, Deere & Company, and Doris and Victor Day Foundation. Quad City Arts recognizes The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation for their contribution, which supports dramatic expansion of the Arts Dollar$ program in 2014.
