Attending our studio classes
Please note these are creative classes where paints both acrylic and water based are used. We do not provide aprons so please provide your child with something appropriate that will protect their clothes or supply something they don't mind them getting messy in such as an old t-shirt.
There is a strict NO NUT policy and we also kindly ask that all snacks are eaten before the class starts. Please Children are required to arrive having been to the toilet to minimise disruption to classes as visits have to be supervised by a stafff member.
All bags, bikes, scooter, skates etc be left in our designated safe place or taken home, depending on location this is not always an option, please check prior to your booked class starting.
Drop off and Collection Policy
Please be on time when dropping off and collecting your child. Some children can get upset if parents/ carers continually turn up late. Please inform us of who is allowed to collect your child as we will only let them go with an authorised person.
All artworks are to be taken home after each session so please come prepared to carry your child's masterpiece (sometimes they will be wet) as we are unable to store any artworks at our locations.
Refunds & Cancellations
If we cannot run a class ourselves due to unforeseen circumstances we will offer you an alternative session to make up for the cancelled session. If you are unable to attend the alternative session then a credit note will be offered.
If we cannot run our class due to COVID (eg a lockdown), we will provide the classes over Zoom.
During our classes we take photographs and videos of the children and their artwork. These photos may be used for publicity purposes on our website, printed publications or social media. Parents must indicate upon booking if they would like their child/children to be excluded from any photographs/ videos.
