Participation agreement

·       children are expected to participate in the art activities that are being offered, if they are unwilling to participate or distracting other children from doing art then they will not be able to continue classes. Art Adventures presents a learning environment that has some structure with step - by - step teaching of technique based art styles while also offering some areas of open exploration and self motivated project time.

Children must have the capacity to follow technique based guidance and also practice self regulation during free times, they are always required to be working on the tasks at hand with a genuine interest in being there to produce art.

Some children may not fit this type of learning environment for a number of reasons and Alicia reserves the right to make this judgment call about whether a child is not the right fit for this program
