REGISTRATION

Registration will be limited to 8 students for adult classes and 10 students for kids’ classes. We will need a minimum number for the class to run. If a class is cancelled due to low enrolment, registrants will be given a full refund or credit to remain on file for future use.

Students must submit a registration form and payment online to complete enrollment in a virtual program. Registration forms are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Use the Register button below the class description to access our secure online registration form. Unfortunately, we cannot hold a spot in the class without a registration form or payment. Registrations cannot be taken by phone or by email at the present time.

All successful registrants (registration form and payment have been received) will receive a confirmation of enrollment/receipt via email.

If you were previously registered for a spring class at the Avenue Road Arts School and had already paid your tuition, you may use a portion of that tuition to pay for your virtual spring class. The remainder of the paid tuition, will be kept on credit for future use or to apply to another virtual class. Please note that online registrations do not happen in real time and are processed manually by an administrator. This individual will apply credits or payments to your online registration and send you confirmation once your form has been processed in the system.


FEES

Fees are paid online and in full upon registration. Fees listed are per student (not per household). Fees quoted do not include any materials. A material list is provided for each class and you will be responsible for securing your own materials. HST will be added to all fees.


PAYMENTS

All payments must be processed online. Our accepted payment methods are VISA or Mastercard.


WAITLISTS

If a class is full, you may choose to be placed on a wait list. Use the Waitlist button (it replaces the registration button) below the class description to access our secure online registration form. If a space becomes available, students will be called in the order in which they appear on the waitlist.


WITHDRAWS

Registrants may cancel from an online program, without penalty, up until the day before the second class (at this point, the one class will be charged, and the remainder of the tuition will be refunded, or a credit will be applied for future registrations). Any cancellations requested on the day of the second class or after the second class, are not eligible to receive any credits or refunds.

Requests must be submitted with our form online. Any approved refunds will take up to 5-10 business days to be processed. Absence from class does not constitute notice of cancellation.


DISCOUNTS

  • Multiple Term Registrations: Receive a 5% discount on the second term.
  • Register more than one person from the same household and receive a 5% discount off the second registration.

Only one discount can be applied to any one registration. Please note that discounts for virtual classes cannot be combined with other offers.

HOW WILL I ACCESS MY CLASS?

Upon registration, you will be sent the Class Meeting ID and the Password needed to gain access to the class. This information will be sent the day before your class is scheduled to start as a security feature.


WHO WILL BE PRESENT IN MY VIRTUAL CLASS?

Only registered students will have access to your Virtual Art Class. The teacher will be present at all classes, as well as an Avenue Road Arts School administrator. The personal approach is important to us so the administrator will be there at the beginning and end of every class to help trouble shoot and make sure the class is running smoothly and the teacher and participants can all see and hear the lesson well. Classes will never be recorded. Should we want to take any photographic images of your online class artwork, for use in marketing materials, we will ask permission prior to taking the image. We may ask that you photograph your work and email a copy to us for use on our website or other marketing materials.
