Classes are small, and projects which students develop individually with teachers may be pursued over several weeks, encouraging an in-depth approach and intensity of experience. Young artists are encouraged to express their real and imaginary worlds in a climate where trust, self-confidence, and acceptance may grow. A balance is sought between preserving the child's natural creativity and providing the skills and discipline necessary for deeper expression to unfold.
Withdrawal from classes is refundable only under serious emergency situations, as decisions to hold classes are made based on registration numbers. In any other withdrawal circumstances, tuition can be transferred to another class/workshop in the same semester. An administrative fee of 10% will be withheld from any refunds or transfers.
Withdrawals after the third week of a studio class are non-refundable and non-transferable to any other semester (except under emergency situations). All other classes and workshops are non-refundable and non-transferable and payment is due in advance unless an installment plan has been worked out.
If a class needs to be be cancelled because of weather or low enrollment, we will do our best to reschedule, but you will have the choice to be refunded.
Please contact us to ask about our inclusive tuition assistance program. We work to ensure that anyone who wishes to attend classes can, regardless of financial situation. Payment plans are also available.
