Cancellation policy: Stuff happens. So, if you register for a class and can’t attend please try to give me at least a days notice so I don’t prepare your space in the class and can offer the class to someone on my waiting list. You can transfer your payment to another class at your convenience. If you give me at least 3 hours notice you will be credited for a future class at your convenience. Sorry, no refund for classes unattended or canceled without notice.

SPRING SPECIAL! Bring a new friend to class (someone that hasn’t painted with me before) and get $10 OFF both your class and theirs!
