Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located? Why does it say “near” a different location?

We are currently located at 263 Central St. in Foxboro. We moved to this location in April of 2012. Previously we were at Chestnut Green and Mechanic Street. Near does not mean in. We are near other towns and it shows people that there are art classes close to them.

How many classes are covered by the tuition cost? How long is a session?

First day of fall classes is September 11th.

Our classes are designed to be taken from September – June. Payment/withdrawal periods are every 2 months. The average number of classes is 7, within the 2 month period, (but may be more or less depending on if there are holidays or school vacations.) Classes meet once a week.

Tuition Session Pricing for the 2017-2018 school year
September 11th/October

Class are considered ongoing for September through June. Lessons do not repeat and most students stay for the entire year.

It is not a requirement to begin in September. Students may join at any time, we have rolling admission, or you can wait until the next session begins. Tuition is pro-rated for classes missed at the start of a session, not for classes missed at the end of a session or for classes missed during a session.

Students once enrolled are considered enrolled for the rest of the year. Their spot is held in their class unless they unroll or switch classes. There is a withdrawal period every 2 months, otherwise a student will be charged.

We do not follow the regular school year schedule in July and August. We switch to our summer schedule, with most classes running Mondays-Fridays with some weekly classes for 5-7 weeks.

How much do classes cost?

Class prices differ depending on the length of the class. The below amounts are per 2 month session.
1.5hrs – $260
2hrs – $300
3hrs – $325

All students are required to pay a registration fee of $20 when entering a class. Registration fees are only paid once a year.

A new session has already started, can I still join?

Yes. We have rolling admissions and a student may join a class at any time. We pro-rate tuition for classes not attended during the start of a session. Tuition cannot be pro-rated for classes missed due to absences.

What are the classes like? Are classes for beginners or more advanced students?

We only have a max of 8 students in a class which allows for all levels of skills within one classroom. All levels are welcomed within a class unless otherwise noted in the class description. Students are able to work closely with their instructor at their own pace and with lots of one on one attention. Some of our classes are inter-generational and may be a mix of teens and adults.

The class I’m interested in is listed as “on waiting list” what does that mean?

It means that a class is full or waiting for increased enrollment and you will be placed on a waiting list. As soon as a spot becomes available you will be notified and you will be able to join. Or as soon as enrollment numbers are met you will be notified. Please call or email the studio to double check because we might be able to accept you into a class.

What ages attend kids, teens or adult classes?

Kids classes include children in Kindergarten through fourth grade. Our teen program starts in 5th grade through 12th. High school students are able to take most adult classes, some students may need to have their skills evaluated to attend adult courses. Some classes are listed as teen and adult and will be a mix of ages.

Do I need my own materials or will the studio provide them?

Will provide all materials for the children’s classes. Teens and adults must supply their own materials. A supply list is given for all the specifics that you will need. You may find the appropriate supply list for your class/medium in the website class listings, if not call or email the studio.
