Frequently Asked Questions

What do classes cost?

Young artist classes are $400 per class and the cost for adult classes range from $395-$595.

Do I need to buy my own supplies?

For adult and online classes, yes. A syllabus and supply list will be provided before the start of the class so that you can purchase supplies needed to get started. We provide all supplies for in-person young artist classes unless otherwise noted.

In the event that this happens, we will do our best to mediate any issues or concerns that a student is having with their class or instructor. A conversation with the instructor can clear up any miscommunication in the syllabus or project outlines. We encourage students to attend as many classes as they can and to talk with their instructors. If they are still unhappy, we may be able to switch them into another running class, depending on availability. As stated in our policies, we do not give refunds once a class has started. less
