New projects each session!

Our classes will start off with your art instructors presenting 2 projects for students to choose between. Students will continue to work on this chosen project for the next few of classes (now 1.5 hrs long!) After projects are complete, they will have the opportunity to choose between 2 new projects.

We incorporate fun, age appropriate art appreciation and art history into each project. We use professional art materials and tools, our lessons focus on technique as well as introducing appropriate terminology.

Our instructors place emphasis on kindness and co-operation while working together in an art studio.

Missed/Catch-up Classes

We encourage students to attend on the same day and time as much as possible. However, if there is a day your child will have to miss, they may attend a different day that week to make up. Please let the instructor know to expect you beforehand.

If your child has missed a class and needs to catch up on a project, please use our online form to arrange a catch up class through our website.

Please do not email or call regarding catch-up classes. Maximum two catch-up classes per session. No credits or refunds for missed classes. Please understand catch-up classes are not owed if a child misses a class. Catch-up times are 30 minutes and do not include any art history component. We offer these catch-up times to help ensure a child will finish their artwork on time. Maximum 2 make up classes per session. Make up classes do not transfer over to another session.

Drop Off
Please do not arrive or drop off more than 5 minutes before classes begin as we really need planning time before the class to make sure the studio is prepared to welcome our students.
Pick-Up
In order to make sure we have an open line of communication with parents:
  • We have scheduled 30 minutes between Exploratory classes. Every class concludes with a gallery show of the incredible art that students created that day. We love having parents come into the studio after the class and our students are so excited to show off their new skills and projects.
  • BUT… Please come into the classroom only once the curator has indicated that the class is over.
  • If you come in earlier it REALLY distracts the students. The last few minutes of class we will be discussing art history and we want to ensure students are engaged and involved.
Snack
  • If you feel like your child may get hungry, please feel free to pack a nut-free snack as well as a water bottle.
  • Clearly label all snacks, lunch bags, water bottles and clothing with your child’s full name. Any left items will be held for a maximum of one week.
  • There are kids coming to the studio who are SEVERELY allergic to nuts. NO NUTS PLEASE!
Important Notes
  • No cell phones allowed. Please leave mobile devices and handheld electronics at home.
  • Please be “dressed for mess” as we will be painting with acrylics (which do not come out of clothing). We have some aprons here at the studio to borrow but sometimes pants, sleeves, dresses and shoes get messy too 🙂
  • If possible, to avoid paint getting on jackets, we highly recommend leaving jackets with parents.
  • Please know that in the event of serious behavioural issues, our policy is to call the parents for immediate pickup.
  • We do not offer refunds. We can transfer your booking if your booking is cancelled 2 weeks prior to the start of class. We cannot provide a transfer or credit after this time.
  • Children must be able to walk into class on their own. Parents are not permitted to stay and wait in the studio during class.
