SOCIAL DISTANCING AND FACE COVERING REQUIRED
These are profoundly uncertain times, and thus our plans for teaching in person may be subject to revisions based on the changing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Remote learning will be considered should local governmental health authorities and experts advise us to do so. The decision to change to remote learning and/or resume in-person instruction, will be informed by, but not limited to federal, state and local guidance.
Should remote teaching become necessary, classes will take place at the same time of the class for a duration of 50 minutes. Students will continue to learn drawing and painting techniques from the instructor via an online platform (Google Meet and/or Zoom). More details will be provided should this change of circumstance occur.
Emergency closings, weather related or otherwise, will be announced through www.artacademyofwestchester.com and announced in our answering machine, and sent to e-mail addresses provided on the registration form. The Art Academy will be closed when Dobbs Ferry school closes due to inclement weather. We cannot guarantee a makeup class for every weather related closing as we are limited to the number of makeup classes we can provide.
Classes missed due to the teacher's absence will be made up at the end of the session. Classes missed due to the student's absence are non-refundable. Students can makeup up to two classes per session by attending another class, space permitting.
Adult Classes: adults are given an additional two free weeks of classes in their tuition. These two additional weeks can be used for weather related cancellations or personal absence. Should there be an additional adult class in progress on a different day, adult students are welcome to make-up a class in that other session, space permitting.
Withdrawals and Refunds
The Art Academy reserves the right to cancel class and will refund Tuition or remaining tuition accordingly. Students who withdraw from class prior to or after the first class receive full refund, less $35 processing fee. There are no refunds for withdrawals after the second class. Students that must withdraw from class for other reasons (misconduct or medical reasons, for example) will receive the remaining of the tuition.
