Tuition is paid monthly, and is processed automatically the first day of each month. Most calendar months will include 4 weekly classes making tuition $160 per month for our 90 minute classes or $200 for our 2 hour Teen Portfolio classes. For months where there are 5 weekly meetings, a prorated $40/$50 fee will be processed in addition. Tuition is only collected for days the studio is open and is prorated for students starting mid month. Payment can be made via cash, check, or credit card. We charge a 3% administrative fee for ALL forms of tuition payment. If tuition is received after your child's first class of the month, a $25 late fee will be added. For pay-by-class students, classes will only be provided upon prior receipt of tuition.For students new to the program, a one-time $25 registration fee will be processed along with initial tuition payments.

Please note all supplies, materials and instructions are included. If a student is unable to register for our 4 class monthly packages, we will continue to offer the pay-by-class option. Pay-by-classes can only be scheduled up to 7 days in advance and are based on availability. AAS admins can issue pay-by-classes upon request

Our Kid's Fine Art Program provides individualized, step-by-step instruction.

Students who cannot commit to a full month can pay $ 45 per 90 minute class, supplies included. However, classes cannot be reserved for more than 7 days in advance. Additional discounts cannot be applied to pay-by-classes.

Our Advanced Teen Art Portfolio Program is designed to aid teens 13-17 year old in developing a sketchbook and building a body of artwork for their portfolio. Each spring, the program culminates in a gallery showcase where teens are encouraged to display their work with the option to sell. By class completion,  teens will have a thorough understanding of how to conceptualize their work and bring their ideas to fruition.

Our thoughtfully designed Anime and Manga Drawing course will help students learn all the core fundamentals and advanced stylization and proportional knowledge needed to draw and sketch Manga and Anime style characters well. Students can request to work from our Manga curriculum in any of our 90 minute classes.

In order to receive a make-up class for a missed class, we MUST be given 12-HOURS ADVANCE NOTICE of an absence. Once a registered class is canceled by a parent/guardian, a make-up pass can be issued by our administrators. Please call or email to schedule your make-up. Make-up classes are scheduled based on availability. Thus, you will be taking two classes a week: one make-up class, one regular class. Make-up class passes do NOT expire however they are only available to students enrolled in monthly classes. Once a make-up class is scheduled, it cannot be rescheduled. We do not issue credits or refunds for missed classes.

If you decide not to continue with our classes, please cancel your subscription BEFORE your next billing (the first week of the month). We DO NOT issue refunds or apply credits for unused classes. We also want to  ensure that your student is able to finish all of their artwork before discontinuing.

Students must be picked up ON TIME after class. All students are asked to wait on the benches outside (near the parking structure).

Alyce’s Art Studio shall not discriminate on the use of school space as the basis of gender identity nor gender expression. The school shall accept the gender identity that each student asserts. There is no medical or mental health diagnosis or treatment threshold that students must meet in order to have their gender identity recognized and respected. The assertion may be evidenced by an expressed desire to be consistently recognized by their gender identity and proper pronouns.  We believe students have a right to express their gender as they wish- regardless of their sex assigned at birth, students have a right to be free from discrimination/harassment based on religious views, students have a right to express LGBTQ pride. We have zero tolerance towards bullying, racism, and other discriminatory practices.
