HOME School Art Class REGISTRATION for 2019 FALL Semester

Creative Soul's Home School Art Classes are taught by Artist & Owner, Susan Garrison.  

Students Love Working with an Artist in a Studio Setting!  Susan is a professional artist & a certified art teacher with over 2 decades of experience in public & private schools (grades K-12 & AP Art Courses) before opening her own art studio 7 1/2 years ago.  At her own studio, Susan has been able to teach students from a variety of public & private schools as well as Home School students.  (Susan even teaches adults through both public & private events at the studio & off-site.)

Instead of creating crafts, Your Child will Learn About:  

  • Famous Artists & Art Styles
  • Drawing, Sketching, Painting, Visual Composition & 3D Skills
  • Creating with Imagination as well as Observation
  • The Vocabulary & Elements of Art & Principles of Design
  • The Process, Skills & Advantages of Developing Plans in a Sketchbook
  • Enjoying the Whole Creative Process & Not Just the End Result

{If your teen is preparing for a visual art deadline to meet requirements for art scholarship applications for college or for a Governor's School for the Arts application, please email those details to Susan, so that we might work together to develop a good plan & timeline.}    

Our Home School Classes meet WEEKLY with a continuing curriculum & lessons that often take more than 1 class setting to finish, so students cannot drop in occasionally but need to be committed to meeting regularly unless sick, out of town, or for weather conditions that make it unsafe to travel to the studio.  The studio will also be closed for family time during Christmas.

Our  WEEKLY HOME SCHOOL ART Schedule for 2019-2020:

Please Note:  
We currently do not have enough students for these 2 Home School Art Classes, but if interested, we'd love to add you to our waiting list to contact you if we do have enough interest to get it going again during this school year.

AGES 7-10 WEDNESDAYS  Noon- 1:00 pm   

AGES 11-18 WEDNESDAYS  1:30-2:30 PM  

**Please note that we need a minimum of 3 students per class to continue to offer that time slot.  However, we do have after school classes that your child may attend instead (along with a mixture of students attending private, public & home schools)  if that schedule is better for you or if there are not enough students to offer the home school class for your child's age group.   (Please email Susan at CreativeSoulStudio@gmail.com for more info about our after school classes including class days & times.)

Our 1st classes of this school year begin meeting the last week of August and it is very important for the students to all begin at the same time.

SUPPLIES?  All supplies are covered in the price including a sketchbook for each child.  We use a wide variety of materials including:  drawing pencils, charcoal, colored pencils, watercolor, acrylics, oil pastels, soft pastels & air dry clay.  

OUR ONE-TIME NON-REFUNDABLE ONLINE REGISTRATION FEE IS $15 per child IF REGISTERED BY 8/10/19  (OR $20 per child if registering AFTER 8/10/19) AND IS DUE with this COMPLETED ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM AT LEAST 1 WEEK BEFORE your child begins our classes.  (Please fill out a separate REGISTRATION form for each child.)

ART CLASS PRICING:   $15 per class billed monthly & due by credit or debit card online before the 1st class of each month.     However, we do accept a check or cash at the studio at the 1st class of each month.  (If you need to make weekly or bi-weekly payments, please contact Susan to make arrangements in advance.)   If paying by credit or debit card, Please be sure to pay here online...ONLY Exact Cash or Check payments are accepted at the studio during class since swiping credit cards takes too much time for Susan to be away from her class or her prep or clean up time between classes & events.     

Our Registration form & fee must be completed here online even if you prefer to pay by check or cash for upcoming art classes.


WHAT HAPPENS IF WE PREPAY FOR A CLASS THAT MY CHILD MISSES BECAUSE HE OR SHE IS SICK?  

Other than the initial 1 time Registration Fee, If you pay in advance for a class that your child cannot attend due to sickness or being out of town or another seriously unavoidable, unforeseen circumstance, we will try to work out a time slot for a make-up class or will forward that payment as a credit into the next month.


If you have any questions, Please email Susan at CreativeSoulStudio@gmail.com.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE & FEES:

Our REGISTRATION DEADLINE for this FALL semester is August 23, 2019 & is very important that your child begins classes with the other students the last week of August.  If you need to begin later, there will be an extra fee for a special appointment to catch your child up on some of our routines & expectations before he or she can begin meeting with us.

Our Non-Refundable REGISTRATION FEE is $20 per student; however, that fee drops to only $15 per student IF Registered by 8/10/19.  (After receiving your Registration form & fee online, I'll email you a special payment link for your child's 1st class.)

***We begin our after school art classes the last week of August (2nd week of school for students in D5 schools) so that you can get used to school traffic & routines as your child starts back to school.   I'll email you a special link before your child's first class.


ART CLASS PRICING:   $15 per class billed on a monthly basis.  We prefer a monthly payment to be made online before the 1st class of each month.   However, we do accept a check or cash at the studio at the 1st class of each month.  (If you need to make weekly or bi-weekly payments, please contact Susan to make arrangements in advance.)   If paying by credit or debit card, Please be sure to pay here online...ONLY Cash or Check payments are accepted at the studio during class since swiping credit cards takes too much time for Susan to be away from her class or her prep or clean up time between classes & events.

Other than the initial 1 time Registration Fee, If you pay in advance for a class that your child cannot attend due to sickness or being out of town or another seriously unavoidable,
