Can my child use other apron during class that is not the Hands on Art 4 Everyone apron?

 We discourage the use of other aprons at Hands on Art, we want our students to have some kind of uniformity during class. It also helps set the tone for creating in our special place.

Can I sit with my child while he/she is taking art lessons?

Though some children have a little bit of a hard time when starting a new activity, we understand that can be helpful for you to stay around while your child gets adjusted. Due to the smaller space and discourage parents sitting with children during class, unless there is a behavior concern and in that regard, please talk to the instructor so we can be more prepared on how to accommodate you as a parent. Siblings should not be in the teaching area when class is in session.

Do I have to buy any art supplies for in-studio paint classes or pottery wheel classes?

We provide all the materials needed to complete your piece

This is the second year my child is taking art classes, would he/she repet the same level and projects as last year?

We group students by age, to be able to present them with projects carefully designed for their age level. For that reason students can remain in a group for up to 3 years. Though the techniques will be same, projects won’t be repeated. Keep in mind, artistic skills are improved by repetition, problem solving and exploration. We might bring back a project done several years ago, but we make sure your child hasn’t done it.

If my child misses a class can I get a refund, or a make up class?

Every week we work on a specific project that may carry on to the next week. In the scenario where a child misses a class a make-up class can be offered in the same week on a different class of the same group level, or It may be offered on the following week if the project carries on to the next week. For any make-up class please contact the teacher immediately to find out where your child’s group is, in the development of the current project. Make-up classes won’t be offered after two weeks past the missing class, unless it is set up with the teacher as a private class with an additional $15 fee. We don’t offer refunds for missing classes when is on customers part, though we can try our best to accommodate student in a different class to help students catch up on project

Would I get discounted tuition on months with Holidays?

Even though our program is planned to take place in a four week basis, due to holidays some months will have 3 weeks of classes. Keep in mind, other months will have 5 weeks, balancing our monthly program back with the original four weeks. On specific months we will offer a make-up class for projects that will be enjoyable to the students, as it is the case for the month of December where we work on Christmas projects. Please review our Holiday Schedule below.

What is the Art Show?

The art show is a great opportunity Hands on Art offers to its students to showcase 6 of their most favorite art works done throughout the year. Their art is displayed in an Art Gallery setup and students get to invite family and friends to join in celebration of their talent and effort. The art show is a fundamental tool of our program; it builds children’s confidence and helps them be identified among family and friends by their creative potential. We present students with small recognition, and free art activities for the guestes.
