Frequently Asked Questions

Can I register for a session after it has started?

Yes, you can register after a session has started. The price for the beginning paint class will be pro-rated based on the remaining art classes. Cost for Studio Art Class is $90 for a 6 week session and does not include art supplies. Studio Art Class is currently not set up to pro-rate. 

What discounts and deals do you offer?

From time to time we will offer coupon codes and promotions – sign up on our e-mail list to be notified, check our Facebook Page Fred’s Creative Kids and keep your eyes open!  If you refer a friend, please let us know – you just may receive a discount on future registration! (Please note early bird registration is only for the Adult Beginning Paint Class and the children’s classes, it does not apply to the Studio Art Class)

What should I wear to class?

Please dress according to the weather, but make sure you wear something that could get dirty.  Even adults can get paint on their clothes.

What if I miss a class?

As we still have to pay the teacher and other bills, you will be charged unless you make prior arrangements.

Do I need supplies?

Studio Art Class students bring their own supplies. Adult Beginning Paint Class students do not need to bring supplies, all supplies are included in the cost of tuition. 

Where do I park?

There is street parking along 9th Ave SW between Fairview Drive and S. Meridian. You can also park along 4th St SW or the green grass lot across from the red gate at the intersection of 4th St SW and 9th Ave SW.

Where is the entrance to the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage and Art Center?

We are located inside the Red Gate of the WA State Fairgrounds — 9th Ave SW between Fairview Drive and S. Meridian. To the left of the red-roofed ticket counters — look for a big blue hanging sign that says “Fred’s Creative Kids Art Classes.” You will enter through a black iron gate and then into the building on the left through the brown door.
