Weekday Art Class Registration Information
About the Weekday Sessions
Classes meet once a week and are scheduled by the session (each session runs 6-7 weeks). Mid-session enrollment will be pro-rated. There is a minimum of 6 students per class or the class may be canceled. Every effort will be made to place your child into another class. There is a maximum of 15 students in each class. If a class is full, you will still be able to sign up (through our online registration booking system) and be added to a digital waiting list. If a spot opens up you will receive an email. If we have enough interest we will open up a new class to accommodate.
Online registration closes 30 minutes prior to the start of class. Call 253-752-9708 to see if there are still spots available. If so, please arrive early and you will be able to pay in person prior to class starting.
We are a nonprofit organization and in order to keep our tuition rates low we are sorry but we are unable to offer refunds.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which class should I register my child for?
Classes are based on skill more than age — Exploring Art for beginning students, Discovering Your Art for intermediate students and Mastering Your Art for advanced students. If a student is signed up for a class not in their skill/ability, our teachers will help evaluate the student to make sure they are placed in the best class for their success and continued learning.
Can I register for a session after it has started?
Yes, you can register after a session has started. The session cost will be pro-rated based on the remaining art classes. Cost per class is $10 for one-hour class and $13 for one and a half hour class and includes all art supplies.
What discounts and deals do you offer?
Register Early and Save! In the past, we have offered discounts for multiple siblings. This year we are trying something new with discounting for early registration instead. 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!
What should my child wear to class?
Please dress your child according to the weather but make sure they wear play clothes. Even when we cover them with t-shirts it is possible to come home with clay or paint on their clothes.
What if my child misses a class?
Your child may make up a missed class on another day, but you will be charged for all classes unless prior arrangements have been made.
Do I need supplies?
All supplies for children’s art classes are covered in the cost of tuition. On the first day of each child’s class for the year, we will supply them with a sketchbook. We ask that their sketchbook stays at the art center until their last day of class for the school year and at that point they can bring it home.
Do I drop my children off or stay and wait?
You may do either one. We ask should you choose to wait while your child attends art class that you stay in the designated waiting area and keep your voice down so students can concentrate on their artwork. We have a small table with markers that siblings can color at while waiting.
Where do I park?
There is street parking along 9th Ave SW.
If there is no school, do you have class?
New this year, our class schedule is broken into sessions. We have a two-week break in December and a one week break in April between sessions. See our class schedule for details. Class may be canceled due to snow, if this happens we will do our best to notify you (please make sure you check your e-mail associated with registration), and you receive a coupon code equal to the cost of one class.
