Thank you for your interest in Artworks Studio Summer Classes. Due to the popularity of these classes, registrations only accepted with payment- in person or by mail. If you must register over the phone, please have your credit card information ready.

Please note the ages, times and dates of classes. Careful planning and consideration for age and ability goes into each class offered at Artworks Studio. Age refers to the age your child is currently and a grade refers to the grade your child is entering.

ETIQUITTE: Due to the tight schedule of classes, please be courteous and prompt in dropping off and picking up your student. A student arriving 10 minutes before class begins is appreciated; please do not drop your child off earlier than that. DRESS: Art is messy. Your student should be dressed appropriately. Materials used in class will stain clothing. Artworks Studio and all teachers associated with the studio are not responsible for clothing that gets stained or dirty.

Class sizes are limited due to the physical space, please do not call the studio at the last minute and ask if your child can bring a friend to class. I prepare each class for the number of students registered. If your child wants to take classes with a friend mention that on your registration form and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

NO Food and drink in the studio. A water cooler is available with disposable cups in the classroom for the students.
