Policies & Procedures
Classes take place in my home located in the Willow Creek East neighborhood of Folsom. Out of respect to the neighbors, please park in driveway if possible. Drop your child off and they may come straight in through the front door. No need to knock. If the door is locked, it is still too early to begin class and children may wait on the patio. At the first class, parent are welcome to a quick tour of the studio with your child and may stay a few minutes during the Intro lesson. For the best learning environment, parents may not attend or watch class. However, parents, siblings, etc. are welcome to arrive 10 minutes before the end of class for the mini art show. Again, you may walk in the front door without knocking. When class ends, any remaining children will be sent to wait on the patio where they can watch for you to pick them up.
Monthly tuition is $88 per child for weekly, 90 minute classes. For out of pocket, tuition invoices will be emailed out and payment collected via Paypal before classes begin. With advance notice, weekly pro-rate is available for vacations, etc. at $22 per class. If you are with Homeschooling, request your voucher invoice early enough to present at the beginning of class. Invoices are offered by semester, month and week.
Absences, Vacations & Makeups
I DO NOT offer CLASS CREDIT for missed classes. I DO offer pro-rating of $22 per class with notification in advance of billing. Notify me of any need for pro-rating before that month's classes begin. I also will offer a maximum of ONE makeup class per Semester, during “makeup week.” You may not makeup a makeup class.
Since the art studio is also my home, children will be limited to certain areas of the house. Outdoors, upstairs and carpeted areas are off-limits.
With the use of pastels and their high pigment and dusty nature, your child’s hands and clothes will get messy! Don’t wear anything fancy, though stains should wash off.
Your tuition covers the high quality Rembrandt brand pastels and other materials used in class. Note that if your child graduates to watercolor you will be required to purchase those materials yourself so they have their own set to keep.
