REGISTRATION: Per 4- or 8-week term ensures a spot is available for the registered student. Registered students have the option to register for a new term immediately following the initial term, indefinitely. (An invoice to register for a new term will be emailed the last week of each term.)
If a student is unable to attend a session he/she is required to contact me at least one hour prior to their scheduled class time. (Acceptable methods of contact include email, phone, or text.) The session shall be deferred to the following class, provided the student has not exceeded the maximum number of allowed deferrals. (The maximum number of allowed deferrals is 1 session per 4-week term, or 2 sessions per 8-week term.) After which, any unattended 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.
Students are required to bring their own art supplies to each session and to maintain their art kit. (Non-consumable supplies such as aprons, brushes, palettes, water containers, etc. may be borrowed from the studio.)
If an individual is being disruptive to others, or has demonstrated destructive behaviour, he/she will be expelled from the studio and no refund or credit shall be issued for any remaining prepaid sessions.
Those who take the summer months off will have the opportunity to register for September in August, provided space is available. Please understand, the studio operates year-round and therefore a spot may not be available when you wish to return to the studio.
Note: Any artwork or art supplies left at the studio for more than 30 days will be deemed abandoned and shall be discarded.
COVID-19: As at March 2020 the studio closed per BC Health regulations and re-opened July 2020. Registered students who stopped attending classes due to Covid concerns will hold a credit for unattended classes until the end of December 31, 2020. After this date, any unattended classes will be forfeited by the student. All students are required to wear masks the duration of class and are asked to use hand sanitizer upon arrival, until BC Health regulations are lifted.
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 space is available.
Workshops / Intro Programs:
A minimum number of registrants are required to run a workshop or class. 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, and debit 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 / pieces 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.
