For monthly payments that are not on auto-pay, there will be a $25 late fee for payments received after the 5th of each month. If you choose our monthly payment option, we will keep a credit card on file, and that card will be charged on the 6th day of the month, if payment is not received by the close of business on the 5th of the month. Late fee will be applied. Timely payment is your responsibility and may be made in person, via mail, or directly from your monthly invoice emailed from Edgemoor Accounting. If paying by check, we do require a completed check authorization form, as all checks are processed electronically for your security. Please call our accounting department at 703 655-2910. In the event of returned checks, there is a $35 bounce fee in addition to the face value of the check.
If you pay monthly, we require 30-day written notice. Due to our busy schedule, notifying teacher or assistants by telephone is not an acceptable method for withdrawal. Please see us in person. At the time that written notification of withdrawal has been acknowledged by our office, you will be responsible for one month's tuition. We are not able to offer credit or refunds for missed classes beyond our 'make-up' policy as outlined.
Tuition is Non-Refundable; make-up classes are available. No refunds are available for summer classes.
Refunds or credits cannot be given in the case of a missed class. A full refund will be given only in the event that Edgemoor Art Studio cancels a session. We reserve the right to cancel any class not meeting minimum enrollment requirements - full refunds will be given in this case.
As long as you have paid your tuition, and your account is in good standing, you can take one make-up at the same class level for any missed classes within a period of one month. If you do not pay your second tuition installment, you cannot take make-ups from the previous tuition period in the second semester.If your child is unable to attend his/her class, please give us 24 hours notice. Please note: Monday art students may attend on the wed of the week in which the class was missed due to a holiday.
In order to not disturb the class, only registered students may remain in the studio. Thank you for your understanding.
Our class sizes are small to ensure that maximum standard for students. Instruction is provided by a designated Lead Teacher and one to two Assistants. If a class becomes filled, we will place your child/children on a waiting list and notify you when a space becomes available.
We take the safety of your children very seriously. An enrollment form must be completed for each child registered prior to leaving your child in the studio. Parents/guardians are required to accompany students when arriving and departing. Older siblings may not drop off or pick up children unless they are 18 years or older, and the studio has been notified in writing of the name of authorized individual. Any and all changes to information contained on the enrollment form must be submitted in writing for said changes to take effect. We are unable to accommodate your child prior to class time as we are preparing materials for his/her class. Please pick up your child promptly at the end of class.
We like to get messy with our creativity! Art overflows onto clothing! The studio will provide smocks for our students. Please have your child dressed appropriately for class.
