Classes, Clubs, and Workshops FAQ

Where is your classroom located?

Unless otherwise noted, our classes are hosted inside the K. A. Artist Shop, located at 127 N Jackson Street in downtown Athens, GA.

Please note: We are located on the second floor of a historic building without elevator access. If you are unable to attend a class due to accessibility concerns, we encourage you to reach out! We'd love to accommodate you with a private or virtual class.

Can I attend I have zero experience?

Many of our classes are perfect for those just starting out, and some are even designed for absolute beginners. Other classes are geared toward those with more experience, but everyone is welcome.

The description above will let you know the general experience levels that this class is designed for.

What do I need to bring to class?

We typically provide all the materials you'll need for our classes, and we typically break out the good stuff!

Once in a while we'll need you to provide some materials, tools, or a high-res digital image (for instance in an "Effortless House Portraits" class you'll need to email us your photo in advance).

The description above will let you know if you need to bring anything, but most often, all you need to bring is yourself.

My child is 9 but very mature; may they enroll?

We're sorry! Our classes are designed for older students, yet we do allow for 10-12 year olds to join in our camps and clubs for pre-teens. We hope they'll join us next year when they are 10 years old.

Is there a multi-class discount?

For multi-class registrations, we recommend you take advantage of our rewards program. You're welcome to register in multiple transactions, using the rewards points earned to redeem discounts on additional classes.

Do you offer class scholarships?

Yes! If a discount will help you attend one of our classes, camps, or workshops, we invite you to use this coupon code as many times as you’d like:

What are your Covid-19 protocols for classes?

As usual, our classrooms are disinfected and cleaned before each day. Masks are now optional in our classes. We've got hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes in each classroom, and students are encouraged to help themselves whenever they need them.

PLEASE NOTE: We ask that students refrain from attending classes if they are at all contagious. We are happy to offer make-up sessions as space allows or credit toward a birthday party to any student who needs to stay home due to illness. You'll need to let us know before your class begins that you are unable to attend; we are unable to offer make-up sessions for no-shows.

What is your classroom cancellation policy?

We understand that things happen and you may not be able to attend the class you purchased. If your plans change, please let us know at least 7 days before your scheduled class begins. If you let us know with at least 7 days notice, we can issue a full monetary refund to your original form of payment or switch you to another class at no charge.

We cannot offer refunds after the 7-day-mark, but we are happy to offer make-up sessions in other classes as space allows or a credit toward a birthday party to any student who needs to miss their scheduled class.

Regretfully, we cannot issue refunds or make-ups for no-shows. Please reach out to us prior to class if you need to cancel or reschedule.

On occasion, a class might not reach the minimum number of students needed. If this is the case and we need to cancel a class ourselves, we will let registrants know at least three days prior to the scheduled event. You'll of course receive a full refund or re-scheduling, and we will also provide a small gift card as a token of our appreciation.
