Please ensure you have filled out all details outlined in our booking form for each participant for emergency procedures. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure this information is up to date in the event that information changes. It is the parent's responsibility to notify all teacher's of any special requirements and allergies prior to class and this is best done via email. We do have some artists that have allergies so please be mindful of food in the studio.
Art is messy, so it is best your child is dressed in clothing that is not precious and an art smock is advised. If you do not have one, one can be made available to you. During covid restrictions, art smocks are unavailable. All attempts are made to purchase paints and other materials which are non-toxic and machine washable.

We do not offer free trial classes. You are welcome to trial the class at the daily fee. If you then wish to sign up to the term, then this will be deducted from the term fee.
We understand life is busy so offer some CASUAL bookings in some of our Programs. Casual places are subject to term based bookings. All casual classes must be pre-booked and payment made prior to the beginning of class.
Tip For Settling In
Regular routines and faces are key factors in establishing trust with our little ones. Each child adapts differently to a new environment.
From my knowledge as a teacher, a parent myself, and feedback from parents, it generally takes 3-4 weeks for a toodler to settle in.
It is best not to force your younger child to participate, instead, sit behind them or with them and be part of the creating process.
Older students may like a parent to stay with them initally and this is encouraged if needed.
If you have two or more budding artists, please get in touch for the family discount. Some programs may be excluded from discounts.
Each program will outline if a parental attendance is required. Most school aged programs are drop off.
All artists attending the TINT ARTISTS, SMALL ARTISTS & PRE-PREP Programs must be accompanied by a parent/carer. Drop off is only for our KINDER & STUDIO Artists Programs. Siblings or friends not attending classes are welcomed in the space. Pushers are too!
Where classes are full, your name will be added to a waiting list and you will be contact via email or text if a place becomes availiable.
What is Processed Art?
Processed Art is about the actual making and creating journey that takes place. It is not focused on the end product. Through learning about the process, students become skilled fine artists. Take a closer look at OUR VISION and why we stand by it.
