Sienna Art Space – 2021-22 Art School
Conditions of Enrolment – Overview
Class fees are listed with class details on the website. Full payment is required as online transfer. All information is listed on the Enrol page. Cash is not accepted. Payment secures your place. There are no adjusted fees or reduced fees due to Family Holidays. Term payment is based on a 10 week structure.
Cancellations & Refunds
In the circumstance that insufficient students enrol in a class or workshop, Sienna Art Space reserves the right to cancel the class. In this circumstance, all students enrolled will be contacted and a refund arranged.
Please be aware that fees are non-refundable unless otherwise negotiated for an unexpected and extended illness. There are no transfers or refunds in the event that a class is missed. No refunds are possible once the course has commenced. Where the Facilitator requires the need to cancel a class, Students may attend an alternate class time to ‘make up’ the missed class. Week 11 sessions will be allocated by the teacher and options communicated & mutually-arrived at in conversation with guardian or adult student.
Absenteeism, Punctuality & Collection of Child Students
In the event of absences due to sickness or other personal/family reasons, students may attend a ‘make up class’ during the same term period. Adult students or Student Parents must notify the Facilitator of the time they wish to make up the class as a general courtesy.
With respect for the tutor and other class members, students are requested to arrive 5 minutes prior to class commencement ( no earlier). Children and Teenagers (11 – 18 yrs) should be escorted to and from the premises by a parent or guardian. Please ensure that they are collected promptly at the end of the class.
We appreciate that students may be late for a variety of reasons. Studio Juniors should be prompt to class due to the short timeframe of learning and nature of structure and explicit instructions needed to organize learners at the beginning of the lesson. Repeated instructions with late comers impede the learning and overall productivity of the art lesson.
All Material requirements for students are clearly stated on the Class Descriptions. Students in Studio Kids 7 – 12 yrs must purchase Art Packs from Sienna Art Space on first enrolment.
This is a mandatory pack for purchase to ensure students have a core set of personal materials and ensuring equality and appropriateness of materials for our Structured Program. All other Dry & Wet Materials, drawing and painting supports are supplied and included in the Studio Fee. Some classes are provided with Materials as indicated clearly on the Class Descriptions of the website. All students receive a folder and periodic class notes throughout the course of learning as part of their enrolment fee. All students must ensure they are well-equipped for class. There is a no-borrow policy for child students unless between family members. All child students are supplied with an art smock in class to avoid clothes stains, however they may choose to wear their own if preferred. Mature Students requiring advice on Suppliers, Materials and Equipment suitable to their current learning journey, may seek suggestions from their Facilitator. Selected Materials & Equipment may be available through Erin directly for purchase.
From time to time photographs will be taken during class of students participating in class activities and of student products. Some select photos are used for Sienna Art Space promotional purposes such as advertising website imagery and social media. These photos will be used exclusively by and for Sienna Art Space.
Upon enrolment, consent may be given or not given by selecting the box displayed.
Sienna Art Space is situated at a commercially leased property and it is paramount that this space be maintained in a clean manner by all that use it. As a shared space, it is an expectation that all students respect each other, each other’s artworks and property. Children with ongoing inappropriate or disruptive behaviour will be asked to remedy their behaviour. Such students will be issued with a formal warning in conversation with their parent. This ensures maintenance of a supportive, productive atmosphere.
Health & Safety
Your Facilitator will address all Health & Safety Guidelines and potential hazards at the beginning of term and where necessary during each class. To ensure student welfare: medical conditions, allergies or disabilities should be brought to the attention of the tutor upon enrolment. Epi-pens, asthma products and other medicines prescribed to students requiring monitoring should be given directly to the Facilitator at the beginning of each lesson where required.
Water is available during art lessons, however it is the Students responsibility to bring with them a Water Bottle (and small snack, if required). Eating should not occur in the physical classroom.
Several students are anaphylactic, therefore no Nut Products and snacks with Nut Traces should be consumed in any given class. We have a Product Consumption Policy to maintain Safety for all Studio participants.
Medical Consent Forms must be filled in at first enrolment to ensure permissions to attend to Basic First Aid Situations, and where necessary both contact information of Guardians and permission is given to transport the student to the nearest Hospital.
Sienna Art Space believes that it is inappropriate for Stage 6 Students of Visual Arts and Design & Technology to be working on HSC Works during Studio Classes. Doing so for this Assessment would be unethical, disrespectful and aids unfair advantage for the child. In the instance that a student needs advice about general art practice, technical advice and further syllabus understanding from their participation in High school or Primary subjects related to visual art where needed, students may seek assistance from their Facilitator as an experienced Teacher in this area. It is important that students and parents recognise Assessable items are all students own work.
Facilitation at Sienna Art Space prides itself on transparency of practice and also the communication of the evolving structure through Certification and Objectives and the encouragement of child students to discuss with their guardians content and learnings.
Our 2021-22 Discipline, Personal Conduct & Safety Rules are detailed clearly as visual posters for students at all times.
Privacy & Confidentility
All contact information is confidential. Information supplied to Sienna Art Space will not be disclosed outside of the school. Sienna Art Space will from time to time send mail and email to students and past students for the purposes of marketing. Should you wish to be removed from the mailing list please notify us in writing that you wish to Unsubscribe.
