New Student Registration for Afternoon Classes
Policies & Procedures
Classes take place in my home located in the Willow Creek East neighborhood of Folsom, at 147 Big Valley Rd. As a courtesy to the neighbors, please park in the 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 (exceptions made for timid, first-time students). 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.
Classes are paid in advance month to month. Monthly tuition is $88 per child. Tuition invoices are emailed out the 3rd week of the month via Paypal and can be paid via Paypal, check or cash and are due the 4th week of the month. With advance notice, weekly pro-rate is available for vacations, etc. at $22 per class. I do not offer sibling discounts. Your payment guarantees your spot in the next month’s classes.
Absences, Vacations & Makeups
I DO NOT offer MAKEUPS or 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. When I take personal vacations you will be notified at least a month in advance and your tuition will be pro-rated to reflect the missed 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.
