Our teachers will come to your house to conduct an art class for a small group of children (no more than 6). COVID-19 safety precautions must be observed while indoors, including wearing masks.
We work with children aged 2-adult. Groups can be mixed age or the same age. Our teachers will develop lesson plans and projects based on the ages and interests of the participants. Teachers bring all the necessary supplies.
Groups must book 6-weeks at a time. A trial class can be held to make sure it is a good fit before reserving all 6 weeks.
Our prices are as follows:
1 child = $100 per class (private lesson)
2-3 children = $50/child per class (private lesson)
4-8 children = $40/child per class (max is 8 children)
No one-time classes: We are not booking one-time classes, only classes that run on a weekly basis.
Email Jen at email@example.com or call 914-723-9229 to book a class or learn more about our in-person class options.
In-person Classes for 2-3-year-olds
These classes are Mommy/Daddy and me. A caregiver must be present and participate with their child in these classes. All other classes are drop-off, but parents are always welcome to stay and watch.
Host Family Requirements
The host family must provide the following:
- A well-ventilated room that is big enough for children to be 6-feet apart.
- Tables and chairs for students and the teacher or adequate floor space for students to sit and work.
- A designated bathroom for students and teacher to use.
- Water for brushes and to wash hands.
- If the children are toddlers (age 2-4), a parent or caregiver must be present to assist the children in accessing the bathroom.
- If any member of the host family is ill, has symptoms of COVID, or tested positive for COVID, you must inform Young at Art immediately. All students will be notified, and classes will be cancelled until the CDC recommended period of quarantine has passed. Classes will be rescheduled if possible or a refund for the missed classes will be made to all students.
What does my child need to bring to class?
- Dress for Mess. Wear clothing you don't mind getting messy. You can bring a smock or oversized shirt to wear. Be prepared with a change of clothing if you need to go somewhere after class. We will use paint!
- Water Bottle
- Personal hand sanitizer
- Wipes (recommended), so that your child can easily clean paint from their hands, arms, and/or face.
The YAA teacher will wear a mask at all times. He or she will check his/her temperature before each class. He or she will wash his/her hands or use hand sanitizer as frequently as possible. Whenever possible, the teacher will maintain a distance of 6-feet or more from students. All materials are sanitized between classes.
The teacher will cancel class if he or she feels ill or has any symptoms of COVID or has been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID. If a teacher or someone in his/her household tests positive for COVID, all families will be notified, and the teacher will quarantine for the number of days required by the CDC.
For classes held indoors, we require that all participants wear a mask during class. If requested, we will encourage students to maintain a distance of 6-feet from each other.
If your child is ill or has any symptoms of COVID, do not send them to class until all symptoms are gone. If your child or anyone in your household tests positive for COVID or they have come in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID, do not send your child to class until they are clear of all symptoms and have been quarantined for the recommended number of days by the CDC.
If any member of the host family is ill, has symptoms of COVID, or tested positive for COVID, you must inform Young at Art immediately. All students will be notified, and classes will be cancelled until the CDC recommended period of quarantine has passed. Classes will be rescheduled if possible or a refund for the missed classes will be made to all students.
Payment in full for the dates of all the classes reserved must be made in order to hold those dates. Each family will be invoiced by Young at Art for their child. Email invoices have a link to pay by credit card or bank transfer. A 3% processing fee is applied. You may also pay by check, which does not require a processing fee. Checks should be made payable to Young at Art Studio, Inc. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the correct mailing address. Our studio has permanently closed.
Discounts - we offer a sibling discount of 15% off the total bill when siblings are enrolled in classes at the same time. The discount is not available for private lessons or in-person classes with 3 or fewer students. It is available for all online classes and workshops. It cannot be used for cousins.
If a class must be cancelled due to bad weather, illness, or any other reason, the teacher will attempt to find another date and time to reschedule the in-person class. If that is not possible, the teacher will do an online class for the students at the end of the pre-scheduled dates. If the class cannot be rescheduled in person or online, a refund or credit will be made for the cost of the class or classes missed.
Due to our limited number of staff and high demand, we are rarely able to provide substitute teachers when a teacher cannot make class. However, if a substitute is available, we will offer that option.
Refunds, Make Ups, and Credits
If a child misses a pre-paid class for any reason, we will provide that family a credit or refund for the missed class. Refunds/credits must be requested via email within 4 weeks of the date the class was missed. Refunds and credits for missed classes can only be made once in a 6-month period. Refunds/credits can be shared by members of the same household.
If a child misses an in-person class or classes because he or she has tested positive for COVID or a member of their household has, a full refund for all missed classes will be issued.
Make up classes are only scheduled if a class was cancelled, and the teacher is able to reschedule the class at a time that is suitable for all students. Make ups cannot be done for individuals who have missed a class, as each class is unique and has preset lesson plans for that group.
If YAA closes and is unable to continue offering classes in person and online, for any reason, it may not honor any credit, make ups, or refunds that are owed. We will do our best to issue refund checks in a timely manner and schedule make up classes quickly to avoid this from happening.
By attending classes, workshops, or birthday parties run by Young at Art Studio Inc, either in person or online, you are doing so at your own risk and you waive any and all liability on the part of Young at Art Studio Inc. for injury, illness, death, loss of property, or any other form of loss.
