Summer Session FAQ's
Summer Sessions are 3-Day classes, 1.5 hours each day, Tuesday through Thursday. There are morning and afternoon sessions with different projects or topics. These sessions are for ages 10+, with a maximum of 6 students (minimum of 4). All of these sessions are held in-person at Janet's home & studio: 269 E. Madison Street, Elmhurst, IL.
My child is 9. Can they still join this class?
Feel free to contact me directly and we can discuss. Classes are created based on age appropriate levels of interest and fine motor skills.
My child is younger than 10. Can you create a class for their age?
Yes! I'm happy to create a class for them, but require them to come with friends to fill out a custom class. Contact me directly with interest and we can discuss options.
I'm an adult and would love to join this class! Can I attend with my child or on my own? Yes! Creating is for all ages and all are welcome.
What if my child can't attend these session times or dates, but we'd love to have you create a custom class? I'm happy to create a class for them, but require them to come with friends (minimum of 4 total students) to fill out a custom class. Contact me directly with interest and we can discuss options.
What happens if not enough students sign up for a course?
I require a minimum of 4 students to enroll in the course. If we have less than 4, I will contact you directly to discuss options. This could include finding friends to fill the course, choosing another class option, finding another time/date to run the course, or your money back.
What if my child wants to create something different in the course? Do you allow for choice? Yep! Because I'm planning these lessons, I do expect students to create along with us. However, if students want to create with different imagery or themes, I'm fine with that!
What if my child doesn't finish the project within 3 days?
No problem. I will either send them home with supplies to complete, or we can schedule them to pop into another session just to finish up their previous work. If this happens, we can discuss options that work best for your child.
I really want to learn how to...? Do you teach one-on-one lessons?
Absolutely! Beyond teaching in the classroom, I also privately teach and tutor artists of all ages. I have spent the last two years privately tutoring AP Art & Design students through their art portfolio submissions, working with students to further their painting and drawing skills, teaching workshops and new techniques to adults. Contact me directly with your ideas and let's see what we can make happen!
