Tuition is due the first class of each month. Monthly tuition is calculated per month depending on the number of classes. We hold classes every day (even if it is a non-school day) with the exception of Christmas break. Class may be canceled due to snow, if this happens, you will be credited a class. If your child misses a class, they may make it up on another day, but you will be charged for all classes unless prior arrangements have been made. Tuition will be pro-rated for mid-month enrollment.
A student’s place is held from month to month. We ask that you kindly give two weeks notice should a student withdraw, or you will be responsible for the next month’s tuition.
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.
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 yearly $10 supply fee.
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?
Our class schedule is not based on any school schedule as we have students in multiple districts as well as homeschool students. We have class on every Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday with the exception of Christmas break.
