Before Class
What to wear?

Dress For Mess! 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.

Do my kids need to bring anything to class?
For session classes kids will need to bring a water bottle, and be dressed for mess—acrylic paint does NOT come out of clothes. All art materials will be provided at the studio.
Anything else I need to do before class?

Yes, parents/guardians please discuss the following before student(s) arrive to class. 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. No refunds or credits for missed time in the event a parent needs to be called if a child is not able continue with the class either partially or permanently due to bullying, or disruptive, violent, inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour.

What if my child will miss a class?
If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up time so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum ONE catch-up time per session. Catch-up times are purely to ensure completion of projects. Catch-up times do not include any art history or theory content and are purely to ensure completion of projects on time. Suggested catch-up time may include attending their regular class 15 minutes early or staying 15 minutes later. Most classes fill so attending another class may not be possible. No credits or refunds for missed classes or catch up times. Catch up times cannot be carried over to the next session once a session ends. Catch-up times are offered as a courtesy only and may not always be possible.
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.
Can I bring home materials for someone who misses a class?
No. If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up time so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum ONE catch-up time per session.

Covid-19, Health & Safety
What if my class is cancelled 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
Currently not required by government health guidelines.

Artwork Pickup
Will I receive an email when my artwork is ready?
We do not email or call.
Please message us through the homepage of our website and choose the question—"Is my art ready for pick up?" An automated message will tell you our current firing and drying times.
Please check our contact page before coming to the studio to make sure we are open.
We check our chat messages as often as possible. Please don’t send a chat, phone and also send an email. We promise we will get back to you.
How long do I have to collect my artwork?
We can store art work for 2 weeks once ready. We have A LOT of artwork moving through the studio and limited storage, so cannot retain unclaimed artwork past that time.
