Sorry, we don't pro-rate for absences, vacations or illness. We don't offer refunds on tuition or materials fees. Registration fees are non-refundable unless the class is cancelled entirely before it begins.
Some accommodation might be made if a student comes early or stays late to work on exercises or projects, with a
Each course has it's own lab fees/materials cost, which will be payable after registration, even when applying for/receiving a scholarship for Tuition Reduction. The lab/materials fees are all-inclusive for the tools and supplies needed during class time, meaning once it's paid for the semester, no other materials or supplies will be needed for the class, during class time (not even for the final art exhibit :-)
If the student wants to practice at home between classes (which is heartily recommended), the student will need some basic tools of their own (except in the case of Drawing with graphite- that's just a regular pencil, nothing special, and some paper).
To grow as an artist, your student should plan to practice daily. Every student should consider getting a sketchbook or journal, a pencil, eraser, and a sharpener. We are happy to make recommendations about specific art materials that are sufficient quality for student work at home, and are still affordable.
Lab / Materials Fees for each class will be specified in the course description during the Registration process.
Classes cost $60/month for each hour per week. Discounts are available for multiple classes per week, and apply to all classes taken by a family.
2-3 classes per week = 10% discount
4-5 classes per week = 15% discount
6-8 classes per week = 20% discount
9-13 classes per week = 25% discount
It is *not* necessary for any of the students in the family to take all 5 class-hours offered to receive discounts. The total number of classes per week taken by all family members added together determines the class count discount.
Generally, classes run for about one hour per week, all four weeks per month. If a class has a different length or frequency, that will be specified in the course description.
