2. THE SERVICE

 

2.1. A description of the Service is available on our website.  We will provide the Service with reasonable care and skill in accordance with the description set out on the website.

2.2. We reserve the right to vary or withdraw the Service described on the website without notice including but not limited to fee adjustments.

3. FEES, CANCELLATION, & RESCHEDULING

3.1 Once we have confirmed your party date, you will be sent a time-sensitive reservation link.  You are required to pay the base fee deposit via this link within 36 hours in order to secure your party date and time.  If payment is not made within this timeframe, you will forfeit the party date and it will become available to the public once more.

 

3.2 The base fee is *non-refundable. If you cancel the Service or if some/all of the participants do not attend your party you will not be refunded the base fee, neither in full nor partially. The base fee includes up to 6 participants and up to 1.5 hours of instruction/creative time for kid-focused parties and up to 2.5 hours of instruction/creative time for adult-focused parties.  If you have fewer than 6 participants, you are still required to pay the base fee.  

*The only exception when it comes to refunding the base fee is if the Studio cancels your Service, in which case you will be refunded the base fee in full.

3.3 If you have more than 6 participants, additional participant fees will apply.  Cost varies depending on the type of art party (child-focused or adult-focused).  Additional Participant Fees will be due in full no later than the day the Service is provided, before the party begins. 

 

3.4 We require your total participant count a minimum of 10 days before your Service date.  This will ensure we are able to purchase adequate art materials. *Depending on Studio inventory, we can sometimes accommodate last-minute requests for additional participants.  Please don't hesitate to ask!

3.5 The Service is capped at 9 participants for in-Studio child-focused art parties and 12 participants for in-Studio adult-focused art parties.

3.6 If you need to reschedule your Service, please let us know a minimum of 14 days before your original Service date to avoid being charged a rescheduling fee.  Rescheduling requests made with less than 14 days' notice will be charged a *non-refundable $50 rescheduling fee + HST, due in full upon rescheduling.

4. DROP-OFF and PICK-UP for CHILD-FOCUSED ART PARTIES

4.1 If adults are not participating, the hosting adult is welcome to remain in the Studio for the duration of the art activity to provide group supervision.  We ask that no more than two non-participating adults remain.  There is no additional cost for non-participating adults.  Alternatively, you are welcome to drop-off and pick-up the children; however, we require the parent of each participant fill out our Participant Enrolment Form prior to the party date so that we have important contact and medical information on hand.  If you select the drop-off/pick-up option, you will be sent a link to our Participant Enrolment Form via email, which we kindly ask that you forward to all parents.

 


5. FOOD & DRINK

 

5.1 We do not provide food nor drink.  You are welcome to bring NUT-FREE snacks and NON-ALCOHOLIC beverages to your party. Please bring your own plates, cups, cutlery, and napkins. Food and drink must be consumed during the allotted art party time.  The host is welcome to arrive 15 minutes before the art party start time to lay-out snacks.  Please DO NOT BRING CANDLES as we cannot have an open flame in the building.

6. MISSING/LATE PARTICIPANTS & EXTENDED PARTIES

6.1 Rose will start instruction at the reserved time regardless of missing/late participants.  Rose will do her best to bring late-arriving participants up to speed, however, please note that instructions for said participants will be condensed so as to fulfill overall instructions for the group within the reserved time period.

 

6.2 Please note, every artist creates at a unique pace and it is common for some participants to not finish their art piece within the allotted time.  If Rose's schedule permits, you are welcome to extend the Service hours to accommodate late finishers.  Additional time is charged at $30/30-minute increment + HST and will be due in full the day the Service is provided before the party ends.

7. CLOTHING

 

7.1 Please ensure participants wear art-friendly clothes as making art is messy and may result in permanent stains.  We do not provide smocks/aprons.

8. PRIVACY POLICY

 

8.1 Please read our Privacy Policy here.

 

9. INDEMNITY CLAUSE

 

9.1 Neither the Studio, any of the art instructors, nor any of the assistants shall ever be held liable (jointly or severally) to you, the participants, or any of your respective estates or representatives, for personal injury or any incidental, indirect, or consequential damages of any kind, or any damages resulting from loss, whether or not advised of the possibility of damage, and on any theory of liability, arising out of or in connection with the Service.  Under no circumstance shall the total liability of the Studio, any of the art instructors, or any of the assistants for any damages or losses arising from the Service exceed the maximum amount of the price of the Service for which you paid.
