how to sign up
for our programs
Choose A Class
Find a class you want using the schedule chart on our home page or the schedule page. Take note of the name and class number if there is one
In the summer, note the camp dates. Also in the summer, you’ll need to sign up separately for Workshops, Camps, Summer Art Buffet, and After-care.
Make An Account
Select “Create account” and follow the instructions. Please read and agree to our policies, which we’ve taken great pains to make easy and almost fun to read (really!). Student image policy is optional.
Add your payment information if you plan to make monthly installments or pay to reserve a spot.
Create A Student
Each student must be created with their own information, including their birthdate.
If your child is almost the age for the program you want, go ahead and enroll. The system won’t charge or finalize the enrollment, but will make a request. Follow up with us if we don’t contact you quickly!
You can also enroll for a class that is full, and it will place you on a waiting list.
Enroll In A Class
Use the menu on our portal page to find the program, and then find the class you have chosen. There are some filters at the top you can use to narrow down ages and days of the week to make it easier. Tap “Enroll Now”
Fill out the information, selecting the student. Also, use the drop down menus and select the payment plan you want, and whether you’re signing up (Active) or asking for a one-time trial class for $30 (Trial classes are paid at the studio).
You may join a class any time during the school year. Please understand that 85% of our registrations are at the beginning of the year, and we have very small classes, so signing up for one of our courses is for the remainder of the current course/school year. Cancelations and refunds are accepted only for special circumstances. Please read our Policy page.

Not quite sure it’s a good fit yet?… Try a TRIAL class.
It costs $30, includes the day’s supplies, and we charge you at the studio instead of online. Follow the same directions above.
Supplies use a different payment system. Please use our supplies page or pay at the studio with check or card.
EVERY NEW AND RETURNING BIG PROGRAM STUDENT MUST HAVE A COMPLETE SET OF SUPPLIES BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS
Big Program Considerations
The Foundations art courses we offer should be considered for the full 2 years if you want to fully understand how to create art without stress and feel competent at the most basic level. We have 72 lessons, and they are independent of each other, so you can start the course at any lesson during the entire 2-year cycle. Your course is purchased to the end of the school year that you sign up and you must re-register for each new school year.
Break your tuition up into easy monthly installments
We can auto-draft your credit or debit card for installment payments. For the Big Program, these are $66 for August and $129 per month for the 9 months afterwards (September to May). The Small Program is $61 for August and $116/mo afterwards.
The drafts will occur on the 2nd or 3rd of each month. To use this interest free plan, simply set up your account with payment information and select the monthly payments plan when you check out. With either plan you choose, the software will pro-rate the amount automatically if you are starting after our school year has begun.
