To prepare, it is important for kids to know to take their time, go slow and enjoy the process with their creations.
When creating we will emphasize using different techniques and the art of adding small details. We will encourage enjoying the process, creativity, patience, and attention to detail.
Parents, please discuss this expectation with children before the class in order to ensure your child understands that we will be creating with details and practice in mind.
* Our goal is to maintain a respectful, patient, and creative learning environment. Please note disrespectful and disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated. In the event of misconduct, parents will be called to pick up their child immediately.
Does paint come out of clothes? Acrylic paint does not come out of clothes. We cannot guarantee that clay or other art materials will come out of clothes. Students should always come to the studio dressed for mess.
Are the session classes different throughout the week? We offer the same class multiple times throughout the week so students can register for the class day/time that suits them best!
Do my kids need to bring anything to class? For session classes kids will need to bring a mask, water bottle, indoor shoes, and be dressed for mess—acrylic paint does NOT come out of clothes. All art materials will be provided at the studio.
Are there classes for drop-ins? All students must be registered before class starts.
Missed / Late Classes
What if my child will miss a class? If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum ONE catch-up specialty class per session. Catch-up classes are purely to ensure completion of projects on time and may be scheduled as a 15 min catch-up before the class.
What if I’m going to be late for class? Being on time is important as we have LOTS to do each class! Late arrivals are very distracting for the group and delay class, which can lead to unfinished projects and prevent class from finishing on time. If you know you’ll be late please advise the studio ASAP. The door is locked for safety once class starts so if you arrive late you may need to wait outside until a teacher is available to let you inside.
Can I bring home materials for someone who misses a class? No. If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum ONE catch-up specialty class per session.
What if my class is canceled or postponed due to a COVID-19 related lockdown? If a class cannot take place due to increased restrictions or lockdown then the class may be rescheduled, students may be transferred to another class, or a credit may be provided for use in future or online classes. No refunds.
Does my child need to wear a mask at the studio? Yes, everyone inside the studio must wear a mask for the duration of the class.
Can my kids share a station? Stations can be shared between 2 people who are in the same bubble.
Artwork Pick Up
Will I receive an email when my artwork is ready? We do not email or call. Please pick up your student's artwork within 7 days of class ending.
How long do I have to collect my artwork? Please note you have 2 weeks to collect your artwork. We have A LOT of artwork moving through the studio and limited storage, so cannot retain unclaimed artwork past that time.
