Art Course Policies

 

• If parents or family members have any questions or concerns about their students’ program, progress or relationship to other students or teachers, communication is greatly encouraged. We will do all we can to resolve any difficulties immediately.
• If a student has special needs, be sure to let us know when enrolling.
• If you have a special request for a particular art project, please discuss with the teacher to be sure it meets the student’s proper skill level. Final determination of the requested art project may be made by the teacher.

 

CANCELLATIONS
• Please notify us in advance if your student will not be returning. 

• Please notify us prior to your student missing a class.  Students who notify us in advance of their missed classes will be eligible for a makeup.
• If a student is more than ten (10) minutes late to class, the student’s seat may be given away (for that class only) to a student waiting for a makeup, unless prior arrangements have been made with us.

MAKEUP CLASSES –

•Please make every effort to attend your regularly scheduled class.
• If we are not notified of an absence prior to the beginning of class, the makeup is forfeited. Please call and leave a message, text or email Jenn to cancel classes. This policy also applies to scheduled makeup classes.
• We request that a makeup be scheduled within the same term as the date of the absence. When necessary, we may allow a makeup to carry over into later terms, if the student is enrolled.
• Makeups may not be done within a term that the student is not enrolled.
• Makeups do not take the place of regularly scheduled classes.
• All makeups must be scheduled in advance.
• Any paid classes cancelled by us due to emergencies will be refunded or a credit may be carried over to a later term.

 

TUITION
• Classes are only paid for by the term. 
• Unless prior arrangements are made, if a student does not attend/pay tuition by the first lesson of the term, the student may lose his/her place to someone on the waiting list.
• Tuition credit is not given for missed classes.
• Tuition is not transferable from one term to another due to poor attendance or any missed classes.
• If a student registers for classes later than the first week of the term, tuition will be prorated for that term.

 

MATERIALS

•The majority of student materials will be supplied by us in the classroom.  This includes but is not limited to the use of art papers, crayons, markers, charcoal, soft pastel, oil pastel, watercolors, acrylic paint, and oil paint. 

•If a student wishes to bring and use their own personal art supplies, we will supply the parent with a list of supplies needed.  This is truly optional and not necessarily recommended.

•Advanced students will be required to purchase and bring to class their own canvas . Parents will be notified the week in advance if any such supplies are needed.

We are committed to providing students with high quality and safe art supplies.  Every effort will be made to ensure that the supplies used in this course are non toxic and appropriate for use by children.

 

 

Yours Truly,
