Wet Paint  is broadcast live on Channel 12 from the 7th floor studio in University Hospital on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 - 4:00 p.m.  Wet Paint introduces children to the work of famous artists.  Youngsters also have a chance to create their own masterpieces.   Children are invited to participate - live - in the studio.  A special TV release must be signed by a parent or guardian for children to be on camera in the studio. This form is available from Hospital Education Program (HEP) staff.  Patients who are unable to come to the studio are encouraged to watch via Channel 12 and participate by telephone from their rooms.  The studio phone number appears on the television screen.

All HEP services are free to children and their families.  For additional information, contact (434) 924-2658.
