Studio Class Policies

Studio Class Information

Studio classes are creatively designed in a way to enrich all levels of experience, including no experience! A unique and fun step by step process was created especially for this reason. This allows anyone (even those with not a creative bone in their body) to connect with their inner artist. Each class you will explore various techniques and mediums. Classes are categorized into the following age groups: Petite Picassos 3-5, Little Amigos 6-8, Kids 9-11, Teens 12-15, and Adults 16+. Special Adult events are for ages 19+. Class duration and price varies pending on topic and medium being used. Materials may be extra and if so it will be stated in the class description.  Class descriptions can be found on Seaborn Art Studio’s official Facebook page or on the website. Class sizes vary pending on age group &/nature of the class. Please note that all classes have limited seats. This allows each artist to maximize their creative experience.

With this said please be aware that the latest I will cancel a class is an hour before. Pending on the situation class will be rescheduled if possible.  For this reason, it is important to be sure to check in with the event for any updates prior to coming to class.

Be sure clothing is loose and comfortable to allow for movement.

Parent/Guardian/Caregiver+Child or Drop-Off

Seaborn Art Studio loves seeing people happy and comfortable as they create and understands that a new environment may be overwhelming for some amigos. The studio also recognizes when it is important to give amigos their space to create without parental supervision. Being aware of the limited studio space, it is also important to note that seats and space are reserved for participating artists for the designated age group. For this reason parents/caregivers are allowed  to stay and participate in classes for ages 3-5.  Classes for ages 6+ are drop off only unless otherwise stated in the class description.
