What Are Classes Like?

The class size for each program varies. Our goal is to provide quality learning to all of our students and ample one-on-one time.

  • Level 1 live classes and camps have a class size of 5 - 10.

  • Level 2 - 3 live classes and camps have a class size of 6 - 12.

  • Art Mentorship has a group class size of 3 - 8, and one-on-one coaching is available.

All beginner-friendly classes are taught step by step, and the instructor provides individual guidance and feedback for each student live during class, and online with Google Classrooms throughout the week. Level 3 - 4 students have longer projects and more flexibility to choose their own subjects, and Art Mentorship students have full customization in their area of study with one-on-one style teaching. Our artist instructors teach all programs according to our signature Art N.E.R.D Teaching Method.

Recommended art materials are posted on each class page. A materials list will be provided for Art Intensives courses. In Art Mentorship, your mentor can advise you on which materials to purchase.

There is no mandatory homework for classes other than portfolio studies in Art Mentorship. Artwork completed in between classes can be submitted through Google Classrooms for private feedback or group critique!

All of our classes are scheduled in Eastern Daylight/Standard Time (EDT/EST Toronto), observing daylight savings.

Missed Classes, Cancellations & Refunds


If you miss a group class, or join late, a recording will be sent to you so you can make it up before your next class. Your teacher will be available to answer questions and provide feedback and support through Google Classrooms throughout the week!

Make up classes may only be scheduled for Art Mentorship students and very young children who cannot work from a recording. Please email 24 hours in advance of your absence to book a make up class.

Art Mentorships are permitted one make-up class per term. Additional make-up requests will require a $5 admin fee. Since classes are planned around student requests, absent students will be sent a recording, as well as additional online feedback from their teacher asynchronously through Google Classroom.

There are no refunds for missed classes because your spot in the program is reserved. All monthly and seasonal classes occur consecutively. If you're unable to attend consecutive sessions, you may choose the drop-in option instead.

In the event of a program cancellation due to low enrollment, we will notify you as soon as possible and provide an alternative or a full refund.

If you are currently enrolled in a monthly, seasonal or yearly term and would like to change your class to a different day, a $5 admin fee is applied.​ There is no fee applied if that change is made after your term ends.

  • A full refund will be issued one week before the class start date.

  • A 10% cancellation fee applies within a week of the start date.

  • A 25% cancellation fee applies if the program has already begun.

  • If you choose to enroll in another program, a credit can be applied from the cancelled program to the new one.

  • Refunds are issued within 7 business days of the cancellation.

  • Credit balances expire after 2 years from the date of issue.

Most of our programs run all year, and you may join at any time. We pro-rate the fees if you're joining late in the term. We do not offer discounts on the course, but arrangements may be made to make up the curriculum.
