My studio classes serve to protect the creative class from the elitist tyranny of artistic snobbery.  In my studios, class-ism doesn’t exist and everyone drinks good wine.   Welcome to Art for the 99%

Missed Classes: I will reimburse any student who has prepaid if they let me know that they will be unable to attend a class one week or more before class is scheduled to begin. If a student provides 24 hour notice that they will be unable to attend, I will extend a 50% reimbursement of that class cost to be applied to the next session.  If a student does not let me know that they will be missing a class by the day before, they will not receive any reimbursement.  Please be considerate of others when verbally indicating your intention to attend a class.  If a student has told me they will be attending a class and does not pay in advance or provide notice within 24 hours that they will not be able to attend then they must provide payment for that class.  This is to ensure that scheduled classes continue for the benefit of the other students enrolled.

Bad Weather Cancellations:  I close my studios when the town where the studio is located close public schools due to a storm.  If you're concerned about a class being cancelled, you can check my home page banner for a notification or call me at 508-278-2768.  Classes will be rescheduled if the current schedule allows, if not, students will receive a 50% reimbursement to be applied to their next session.
