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 painting within 2.5 hours. 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 and will be included in the final invoice and due in full the day the Service is provided before Rose leaves the venue.
