We offer discounted Class PKS for all our in-person & online courses according to our calendar program. We also offer individual day sign ups in most courses (where available) however we strongly recommend signing up for a full course session if you are interested in receiving a comprehensive learning experience in your chosen media, as you will need to follow the class curriculum to learn your craft. Full Class courses meet once a week over the course of one month or two (your choice), with discounts included and the more classes you sign up for the bigger your save.
Individual Day Sign Ups
We offer single day sign up options for those who cannot commit to our monthly, o schedule. Please note these are offered as a fun taster activity or introduction to the media. We do not guarantee you will finish a project in one session, particularly if you are working on a more involved or challenging media (like an Oil Painting for example). Or if you are signing up for a Digital Art Class, it is not possible to teach the full technique in one sitting- more classes will be needed. Furthermore, you may not get the class project finished. We recommend signing up for full class course to truly benefit from the tuition we offer. It is simply not possible to teach everything in one session.
Full payment is required in order to reserve a spot in the class or program of your choice. Select the class of your choice on our website, choose the Class PKG in the drop down menu, and a registration form will pop up, after you have filled that out, it will lead you to Checkout.

If you’re looking for a refund or class credit for a full class PKG, you will need to back out of the class at least a full week before it starts. We would need to receive notification of this in writing by email. This might seem strict but due to COVID-19 high cancellation rates and unpredictability, and since our spots are limited and teachers are booked in advance, so as a small business it is simply not possible for us to deal with last-minute bailings. We hope you understand we cannot run our classes according to student’s personal schedules. We recommend individual class sign ups for anyone with a tricky schedule, or for those who wish to try a class before committing to a full class course.
