FAQs

Q:   My child is almost 6 year old, can she/he join art camp?
Prefer not but it’s your final choice. we have lots of art project and activities going on without nap time, we are concerned he/she can’t concentrate during art time ( minimum 60 min. ), or gets tired by walking almost mile daily in summer. If you think your child is mature enough,  there are two exceptions when we could have a 5-year-old join our camp: with an elder  friend, we then suggest  half day camp, or with a caring older sibling, if for full day camp.

Q:  My children are ages 6 and 11, Will they doing different art at the same camp?
Yes, we always have 2 to 4  choices for campers, with different levels prepared in advance. We make sure it covers all ages in the camp, boys and girls favorite. We also make sure the younger campers take break every 1 hour, and older campers every 1.5 hr, different activities provide by ages as well.

Q: Do I have to sign up all of the 5 days in camp? Can I choose only few days?
For summer camp, yes 5 days are the package, 3 or 4-day package might be added after the camp starts on Monday or Tuesday, if we have spots left;
For Spring, Winter and Mid-winter, there are 1 day to 5 days choices.

Q:  Shall we attend a class before summer camp starts to get my child familiar with the place and possibly a teacher or two? Do you offer free trial for camp?
You will not have to worry about familiarity with our studio since most of the kids who sign up for the art camps are new and there is social/play time dedicated for everyone to get to know each other and the art studio.  For art camps, we do not offer a free trial, but you are more than welcome to book a drop-in class, which would be $36 or up. or schedule a tour with us.

Q:   I booked 1 day/1 wk camp for my children, they loved it so I booked 1 more day/week camp at separate order, do I get  partial refund to match the discount ?
Unfortunately not. We are glad your children enjoyed the camp and appreciated your returning order, but the 2nd booking also adds work to our staff , such as: administration after hours to prepare forms & answer emails, inform the art instructors and manager; Also camp instructor needs to re-group campers, adjust teaching plan; Manager needs to update/ refill supplies inventory or may call an extra instructor to help. Therefore, one booking ahead of time definitely  saving us time, and give you lower rate.

Q:   My child has a broke bone and recovering, can he/she still come to camp?
If your child  has an injury, has a flu or is ill, please allow them to stay at home till they have recovered completely and contact us to arrange a different time.
