New Policy for Classes

The Art House is requesting that you pay your entire monthly tuition, at the beginning of each month, whether you come to class or not. We have a waiting list, in most cases, and/or turn people away because of limited space. Your fee pays for your spot, your shelf, and the supplies that we purchase for your class. Even though you may not be here, we are firing pieces, mixing glazes, hauling clay, purchasing paint and brushes and canvas, not to mention paying the light bill.

So, if you are going to miss class, please call, email, text, send a carrier, and we will arrange a make-up, if possible. If the month is shortened, due to holiday or other closure, your fees will be prorated. The minimum tuition is for one month. When you are needing to stop the class, please clean your shelf and pick up all art pieces within 30 days.
