Students are required to bring their own art supplies to each session and to maintain them. (Non-consumable supplies such as aprons, brushes, palettes, water containers, etc. may be borrowed from the studio.)
If a student is unable to attend a session he/she is required to contact me at least one hour prior to their scheduled session. Acceptable methods of contact include email, phone, or text. Their session shall be deferred to the next week, provided the student has not exceeded the maximum number of allowed deferrals. The maximum number of allowed deferrals per 4-week term is 1 session; the maximum number of allowed deferrals per 8-week term is 2 sessions. After which, any missed session(s) is forfeited by the student and no reimbursement or credit shall be issued. “No shows” will not be deferred or credited for another session.
Registered students have the option to re-register on an on-going basis, indefinitely. Those who take the summer months off will have the opportunity to register for September in early August, provided space is available. New students are welcome to register, if space is available, after the 2-week registration period for returning students (Mid-August).
Please wear appropriate clothing for painting and other messy projects. Toxic/hazardous materials are not allowed. We prefer you don’t paint with oils, but if so, please use low-odour products and bring all clean-up material with you.
If an individual is being disruptive to others, or has demonstrated destructive behaviour, he/she will be asked to leave the studio and no refund or credit shall be issued for any remaining prepaid sessions.
Note: Any artwork or art supplies left at the studio for more than 30 days will be deemed abandoned and shall be discarded.
Re: COVID-19, registered students who have not returned to the studio since it reopened in July 2020 will hold a credit for unattended classes until the end of 2020. After this time, any unattended classes will be forfeited. Studio space is limited and new and returning students are accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. All students are required to wear masks the duration of class and are asked to use hand sanitizer upon arrival, per BC Health regulations. If a class is canceled due to Covid restrictions any unattended prepaid sessions will be deferred to the next available class time.
DROP-INS: I allow drop-ins when space is available. Someone wishing to drop in must be interested in registering for the class they wish to attend and shall pay a drop-in fee of $45 for a 2-hour class. Please contact me prior to the class time you wish to attend to confirm.
A minimum number of registrants are required to run a workshop. If a person registers for a program and the program is cancelled due to low registration a full refund (or credit towards another program) shall be issued. No refund or credit shall be issued for cancellations or “no shows”.
We accept cash, credit card, debit and e-transfer payments. Fees posted online do not include applicable taxes. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Refunds & Credits:
We do not offer refunds or credits for art lessons, workshops, or any other program – unless the class is cancelled by the instructor.
Original artwork may be returned and refunded (less shipping fees) within 14 days from purchase date and must be received in perfect condition and in original packaging. Please contact me to inquire about how to return an item. Custom prints cannot be returned.
Individuals who are registered for art lessons may gain an additional class when they refer another person whom registers for Art Lessons (any age) while the other is registered. Applicable for Ongoing Art Lessons only.
