Do I need to stay with my child during the lesson?
No. For our weekly classes there is no need to stay with your child unless they specifically
need your presence. We find that students create more independently when they do not
have their parents there!
If your child is under 4, we do require you to stay with them during our Saturday Drop In
session, but there is no need to stay during our weekday preschool sessions.
Do you offer adult classes?
No. Contact Cutters Art Yard on 5534 6988 for information on adult classes.
What age groups do your lessons cater for?
We have a range of classes for most age groups from 3- 14 years. See our class timetable for age ranges.
We can also arrange private one on one lessons for kids older than 14.
Do I really need to book?
Yes! Our classes are regularly full and require bookings so our teachers can accommodate your mini-artist.
Our Saturday drop in session is an exception to this, and does not need to be booked, however once we reach maximum limit on our Saturday sessions there could be a waiting period.
What happens if I miss a lesson?
If your mini-artist misses a class we are happy to offer a catch up session on any Saturday after the missed class.
If your child can not attend their catch up session on a Saturday, credit can be offered for classes if you contact us with at least 3 hours notice of your mini-artist not attending class. Credit can be accrued throughout the term to a maximum value of 2 classes per student. Credit can be used for the following term or during school holidays. If you do not contact us we will be unable to assign credit to your account.
What happens if my child is late to their lesson?
In most cases our teachers will endeavor to help your mini-artist catch up to the rest of the class, but this will not always be possible. Late arrival means that your mini-artist will miss crucial parts of the instruction, which will impact on their final result
What happens if I am late picking my child up from their lesson?
For all our weekday classes students must be picked up within 15 minutes of the end of the lesson. Our teacher will not leave the studio until all the students have been picked up.
Students who remain at the studio for more than 30 minutes after the end of the lesson will incur a supervision fee of up to $60 per hour.
Our Saturday drop in session will be charged per hour or part thereof. Students who remain into the next hour will be charged in full for that additional hour.
Can we pay by card?
Yes! We can take card payments in store, or over the phone for our term classes, products and drop in sessions. Holiday workshops can be paid via our online store with PayPal or credit card.
Can we pay casually?
Most of our classes require a term commitment, and we are unable to hold spaces for casual students. Our Saturday drop in session is the only exception to this.
