  • If a student misses a class, they can attend another class if there is space available. However, there is ABSOLUTELY NO PRORATING OR REFUND for missed classes. "Missed" classes cannot be used as a "class credit" for the next session.

We believe children should be able to enjoy and focus on their art class. For this purpose, we ask parents to wait outside the studio room until class is over to avoid disruptions. Please call us or discuss it with us if you have any concerns about this policy.

We will communicate by mass email to all families and via our Facebook and Twitter page(s).

If we close due to inclement weather, students can make up their classes following our make-up procedure. Mix Colors art studio does not refund or credit for classes canceled due to weather.

We also want to stress that we want everyone to use their best judgment at all times and make a personal decision for you and your family based on the roads in your area and your feeling about driving to art classes. Even though we may be open for classes, please don’t feel like you need to travel to the studio if you are questioning the trip at all. We understand and you can make-up the class. Ultimately, we want everyone to be safe.
