TERMS & CONDITIONS
All references to you include you and/or all other parents and/or guardians (as applicable) of a prospective student or students. By enrolling yourself or your child or children (hereon referred to as your child) into one of our classes you agree to the following terms. We reserve the right to amend these terms at any time and continued attendance by you or your child after such amendments will constitute acceptance of the amended terms by you.
We run art classes for the following age groups:
Junior Artists: 5 – 12 years old
Teen Artists: 13 – 18 years old
Adults: 19 and up
Places in our courses are only confirmed upon full and upfront payment of the term fees. Towards the end of each term, you are automatically reminded by email to enroll for the following term. Your or your child’s place in the following term will only be confirmed upon full and upfront payment of the next term’s fees.
Class sizes are strictly limited, and due to popularity of our classes we cannot reserve places. Any student who has not enrolled and paid in full while there is availability will be unable to attend.
Right to refuse or cancel enrollment
We reserve the right to refuse admission or cancel the enrollment of any student who poses a disciplinary problem, disrupts other students or students who are unwilling to participate in the scheduled coursework.
Please advise us prior to enrolling if your child has any behavioral, medical or social difficulties that may affect them, and possibly others, within the classroom. These could include anxiety, ADHD, physical aggressiveness, medical conditions, or allergies.
Please contact us or visit the relevant course page on our website for current pricing.
Payment for course fees is to be directly credited to our bank account upon completion of online enrollment.
Payment to be made to: The Art Bubble Studio.
Please consider your booking carefully before enrolling as we do not offer refunds once payment has been processed.
Courses are designed to be sequential, so we strongly recommend that students attend every class in order to understand and build on the content taught.
Students should arrive for their class within and no earlier than 5 minutes of the scheduled start time and should be picked up no later than 5 minutes after the conclusion of each class.
Students are not permitted to use mobile phones during class time, and all phones should be switched to silent. Teenage students may use their phone or iPod to listen to music while working.
We cannot be held responsible for any changes in work commitments or personal circumstances of parents or students, and we will not issue refunds for any missed classes.
Subject to class availability, we will offer a make-up class if you inform us in advance that you or your child will be unable to attend certain dates, you or your child is unwell, an unforeseen event occurs, or you or your child has had to miss a class due to a cancellation by staff. In the event a class is cancelled by staff, we will inform you as soon as we are able to do so.
We reserve the right to change teachers without notice because of circumstances outside of our control, and we will not issue a refund if there has been a change in the teacher of a class that you or your child is enrolled in. You agree that students are enrolled to undertake the course and there is no guarantee as to who the teacher will be.
Reviewing work made outside of classes
Students may occasionally request their teacher to review work created at home, provided it is strictly related to the content of the class or homework recommended by the teacher.
Work that is independent of class content and completed outside of the studio may only be reviewed by appointment, and a tutorial fee of $100 per hour will be charged.
Students who request a review of work are asked to keep in mind that they are requesting a professional assessment from a professional artist, who is under no obligation to offer encouragement or discouragement, and that it is inappropriate to interpret any remarks regarding their work as personal criticism.
All materials are provided (for in-person classes). We use high quality art materials, and this is reflected in the course fees.
We supply basic art aprons, however if you would prefer your child to wear an art smock please arrange this personally.
We may take photographs of students participating in class or any artwork they create in class and publish them on our website and social media pages, or for other advertising and publicity purposes. If you do not want you or your child and artwork to be photographed, we ask that you inform us before the commencement of the term. Nevertheless, if at any time you request that we remove any images of you or your child and artwork, we will endeavor to do so as soon as possible.
We cannot be held responsible for any personal property you or your child bring onto the premises, and we cannot be liable for any loss or damage to such property. For this reason, we recommend that students do not bring any valuables to class.
Lost or damaged artwork
We cannot be held responsible for any lost or damaged artwork belonging to students. It is the responsibility of each student to collect their artwork at the end of each term, as any uncollected artwork may be removed or disposed of.
If you are the parent or guardian of a student, we request that you are contactable via your registered details for the duration of each class, in the event of an emergency.
While we use age appropriate materials in our classes, you acknowledge that to the extent permitted by law, we cannot be responsible for any damage to your child’s attire or personal property from the use of these materials.
While we do everything possible to maintain a high standard of supervision in our classes to ensure the safety of students while they are on our premises, we cannot be responsible for the safety of students outside of classes. You acknowledge that to the extent permitted by law, we are not responsible for the safety of students outside their class time or outside our premises, which is why we ask that all students are collected immediately after their class.
If you have any concerns or comments, please let us know by sending a personal info to TheArtBubbleStusio@gmail.com and we will respond as soon as possible.
Upon payment of our fees, these terms, as amended from time to time, shall represent the entirety of the agreement between you and us, and any changes must be in writing and agreed to by us to have effect.
