The Art House is located in Betty’s home in the Sand Lake area, right off Raspberry Road, near the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska.
My primary goal is to provide a non-competitive, positive environment where anyone can experience the joy that comes with the act of creating. I strive to give students the opportunity to develop traditional art skills by teaching the basic concepts of art with every medium introduced. I often tell them that doing art is simply solving one problem after another and it is a joy to watch children develop critical thinking skills as they work on their projects.
All class fees include quality art supplies used in class so you do not have any other supply fees to worry about. Class fees also include a simple snack offered during a ten minute break in each class session and occasionally a prize from the ever popular “prize box”!
Sign-up requests are done through e-mail only. I will then send you a reply confirming your class requests or letting you know that you are on a wait list. I like to have a record of what is communicated by both of us so I prefer to answer questions by e-mail. Most e-mails are answered within 48 hours but if you think I may not have received your email please call me at 248-9622. My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following information in your e-mail when you sign up, even if you have been with me for a while. I like to know how old students are when they will attend a class so that I can seat them with others their age.
After I have confirmed by e-mail that you have a place in a class a check for the full amount of the class fee is required within a week. This is the deposit check that will reserve your spot. I will cash this check one week before the class begins, unless you have asked me to invoice a homeschool for you.
Separate checks are needed for each class you sign up for within a week of your confirmation e-mail from me. You may include all of the students signing up for a class from your family but please send a separate check for each class.
****Please make sure that your check is post-dated so that I can cash it the week before each class begins. Unfortunately my bank will not cash a check that is over 6 months old. The simplest way to do this is to date it for the first day of the month that comes before the one your class begins in. Thank you!
I have been an approved vendor with Family Partnership, Frontier and IDEA for many years. I am happy to invoice either of those homeschool associations for you but I still require a deposit check to hold your spot in a class. I will invoice your homeschool about a week before the classes begin and return the uncashed checks to you on the first day of the class. Please make sure that you have requested that money is set aside for my classes with your homeschool as soon as you sign up for a class.
Full refunds are given up to 4 weeks before a class begins.
After that, class fees are refunded as follows:
No refunds are given if your spot is not filled before the class begins.
If there is a waiting list and your spot is filled you may be refunded for the class fee.
If there is no one left on the wait list and you find someone to take your spot, have your friend contact me and then have your friend pay you directly for the class. I prepare nametags, a seating chart etc so the day a class begins is too late to make these arrangements so please keep that in mind. Thank you!
