Payment/Cancelation Policy

All classes with My Art House Studio, LLC must be paid in full in advance through our online booking system in order to participate. We do not accept cash, checks, or direct payments (Venmo, Zelle etc).

All Six Week Sessions can be fully refunded 48 hours before the first class. After this 48 hour threshold, you will receive a 50% refund of the price paid. There are no refunds for individual weeks missed in a 6 Week Session. Please view our Absence/Sickness Policy for more.If you are unable to attend class, you may attend another class that same week if one is available. Please email us at hello@myarthousestudio.com and we will do our best to reschedule. All refunds will go back to the card or platform it was originally purchased on. We cannot send refunds to a different platform or card.

Absence/Sickness Policy

We understand things happen and we will work with families to accommodate those less than ideal circumstances as best we can. If a child misses a class, they may make the class up the following week or take a class of the same monetary value or less; as long as it’s age appropriate. This make-up class must take place within 14 days of the absence. For the safety of all in involved, we do not record live classes for absent students.

For 10 Week Sessions: It is strongly encouraged that students and families do their best to attend every class during these sessions. Many lessons build upon the previous week and missing a week could result in students feelings left behind or confused. There are no refunds for individual weeks in a 10 Week Session. 

If a teacher is unable to teach a class, we will notify all participating families immediately and do our best to find a reliable and trustworthy replacement. In the very unlikely event that this happens, students will receive a make-up date for the class missed (typically one week after the end of the session) or a single class credit for another session.
