What is Spring Exploratory Session Class?

An Exploratory class is a fun & educational art course for artists aged 5—15 years, in which students explore a variety of mediums while learning art history and culture. Our curriculum encourages a love of learning, independence, art technique learning, and skill development.

Our projects are designed to incorporate Fine Art techniques, with exciting new projects and artist inspirations every session. Students learn to use professional artist-quality tools and materials to complete their artworks in an art studio environment. This course is suitable for beginners and experienced students alike—as skill levels grow and students master the art techniques they will unlock more possibilities for their artworks.

We offer exploratory classes throughout the week so that our families can choose the time that works best for them. If a student does miss a class they can attend another class in the same week to catch-up on what they missed so they don’t fall behind.


Exploratory Course Structure

Courses run throughout the school year, and in Summer we offer camps. At the beginning of the first class of the session, students choose between 2 projects. Students continue to work on their chosen project for multiple classes. The projects may include acrylic painting, watercolour painting, pour painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, polymer clay, ceramic clay, and more.

Working on projects for several classes means we can complete more complex artworks that include a variety of techniques, while encouraging students to focus on honing their skills, and enjoy the creation process.

Every project is inspired by a celebrated artist, students learn all about their life and works throughout the session. Students take home artwork once complete.

You can check out the upcoming artwork collection we’ll be teaching in our exploratory session and join our online community by joining our Facebook Group. This is also where we share important announcements, updates, offers and promotions, and exclusive art giveaways! We love to share photos of students’ artwork and other exciting things happening at the studio. If you would prefer your artist to work on a specific project choice or medium (e.g. painting), let the teacher know at drop off!

Class

Does paint come out of clothes? Acrylic paint does not come out of clothes. We cannot guarantee that clay or other art materials will come out of clothes. Students should always come to the studio dressed for mess.

What is the difference between a Session class and a workshop? A workshop is a one-time class for families, kids, &/ or adults in which students complete one project from start to finish. The Exploratory session class is a kids-only course spread across several weeks.

Are the session classes different throughout the week? We offer the same class multiple times throughout the week so students can register for the class day/time that suits them best!

Do we offer drawing specific classes? Exploratory classes may offer a drawing choice or include an element of drawing as part of a larger project. Occasionally we offer drawing specific mini-sessions if there is space in the schedule.

Do my kids need to bring anything to class? For session classes kids will need to bring a mask, water bottle, indoor shoes, and be dressed for mess—acrylic paint does NOT come out of clothes. All art materials will be provided at the studio.

Are there classes for drop-ins? All students must be registered before class starts so we can prepare.

Missed / Late Classes

What if my child will miss a class? If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum 2 catch-up classes per session. Catch-up classes do not include any art history content and are purely to ensure completion of projects on time.

What if I’m going to be late for class? Being on time is important as we have LOTS to do each class! Late arrivals are very distracting for the group and delay class, which can lead to unfinished projects and prevent class from finishing on time. If you know you’ll be late please advise the studio ASAP. The door is locked for safety once class starts so if you arrive late you may need to wait outside until a teacher is available to let you inside.

Can I bring home materials for someone who misses a class? No. If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum 2 catch-up classes per session.

Covid

What if my class is canceled or postponed due to a COVID-19 related lockdown? If a class cannot take place due to increased restrictions or lockdown then the class may be rescheduled, students may be transferred to another class, or a credit may be provided for use in future or online classes. No refunds.

Does my child need to wear a mask at the studio? Yes, everyone inside the studio must wear a mask for the duration of the class.

Can my kids share a station? Stations can be shared between 2 people who are in the same bubble.

Artwork Pick Up

Will I receive an email when my artwork is ready? We do not email or call. Please check your artwork status on our website, and book an appointment to collect it once ready.

How long do I have to collect my artwork? Once your artwork status says ‘ready for collection’ you have 2 weeks to collect your artwork. We have A LOT of artwork moving through the studio and limited storage, so cannot retain unclaimed artwork past that time. Contact the studio to book your collection appointment.
