ART PROGRAMS - FAQ
What Are Classes Like?
How many students are in each class?
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 1-3 Art Foundations classes a class size of 6 - 10.
Level 3 Art Intensives courses have a class size of 6 - 12.
Art Mentorship has a class size of 3 - 6.
How are lessons structured?
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.
What materials do I need?
Is homework assigned?
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!
What time zone are the virtual art classes?
All of our classes are scheduled in Eastern Standard Time (EST Toronto)

Cancellations, Refunds & Late Policy
If I miss a class, can I make it up or get a credit?
All monthly and seasonal classes occur consecutively and include one make up class per term. If you're unable to attend consecutive sessions, you may choose the drop-in option instead.
To schedule a make up class, call or email email@example.com 24 hours in advance of your absence. No make up classes are provided if: 1) no prior notice was given 2) the student is a no show, or 3) the student misses their make up class. There are no refunds for missed classes because your spot in the program is reserved.
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 (including your deposit) within 7 business days.
If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, we will notify all students via email or phone as soon as possible with options to make up the class. Our social media (Instagram and Facebook) will also be updated with any cancellation announcements. If no announcement is made by 1:00 pm, classes will run as regularly scheduled.
Can I switch my class to a different one or different time?
If you are currently enrolled in a monthly, seasonal or yearly term and would like to change your class to a different day, a $25 admin fee is applied. There is no fee applied if that change is made after your term ends.
What is your cancellation policy?
A full refund (minus the $50 non-refundable deposit) 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.
Deposits are non-refundable, but can be credited towards any future program within the same term.
Credit balances expire after 2 years from the date of issue.
Can I join the program late?
Most of our programs run all year, and you may join at any time. For regular classes, we can pro-rate the fees if you're joining late in the term. If you are interested in a specialty course, you may still join late if you miss the first class of the term, We do not offer discounts on the course, but arrangements may be made to make up the curriculum.
