Payments: All invoices are due by the first class of each month, unless specific arrangements are made with Lindsey. Payments are accepted online via credit card on a secure website, or at the studio with cash (exact change only, please), check made out to The Art Spot, or credit card. Any invoice not paid by the 15th of the month will be subject to a 15% late fee. Please contact Lindsey at firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns.
Attendance Policy: While regular attendance is crucial to completing your artwork, we understand life can get crazy, and sometimes you can’t make your class. Make-up lessons are only given for classes missed due to studio closure or severe weather.
Class Time: It is our goal to make sure that your class time is being used the best way possible. For that reason, please make every effort to arrive on time. It is fine to arrive early, but please wait in your vehicle until your class time as there may be another class finishing up. The last few minutes of each class are just as important as any other, and often we are discussing artwork, progress, or intentions for the next week; it can be frustrating to those students to be interrupted by early arrivals. Similarly, please be sure to be there to pick up your students at the end of your assigned class time.
Studio Closures: All planned Studio closures will be announced in the monthly invoice email, as well as discussed in class the week before. However, sometimes things come up, or weather gets in the way, or my own kids get sick, and impromptu closures happen. Every effort will be made to communicate directly with you as early as possible via call or text, so please be sure we have a working phone number on file for you. Also, we will post about last minute closures on our Facebook page, so be sure to follow along there as well.
Referrals: We will offer a 50% discount off of one month of tuition to any referral that results in someone signing up for classes. The new student/parent must sign up for classes and attend, and they must let us know that they were referred by you, so be sure to have them let us know!
Family Discounts: In the event that more than one family member is enrolled, we offer a $10 per month discount for the second and fourth enrollment. Students do not need to be in the same class to take advantage of the discount.
Social Media: We love to celebrate our students and their work on social media! We regularly post images from class, as well as finished artworks on both Facebook and Instagram. However, if you prefer to not be photographed, or don’t want your work featured, please let us know. Be sure to follow us!
Art Supplies: Everything you’ll need for class will be supplied to you as part of your monthly tuition, but if you’d like to start purchasing your own supplies, be sure to let us know! We are always happy to advise you on the best, most affordable supplies for whatever type of art you’re into. We also have resale accounts with many suppliers, and may be able to get a great price for supplies for you!
Parking: Our parking lot is small, however you are always welcome to park in the driveway behind the building, or in the grass behind the building also. Please do not park in the grass in the front of the building.
Open Studio: Need more art time in your life? Awesome! We’d love to have you join us for Open Studio hours. During these times, the Studio is open to the public and current students. Advanced Art students may attend at no cost (studio fee is included in the price of your class), and all other students can attend for a discounted studio fee of $15 per project. Get some extra time on your in-class projects, or come in and try your hand on some artwork of your own. To see what dates are available for Open Studio, please visit the calendar page.
