In-person classes and camps are closed due to Provincial Shutdown Order effective April 3, 2021.
Note: Spaces are limited; enrolment is not guaranteed unless the class fees have been paid.
Yes, please come during our office & class hours so our Administrator can show you around and answer all your question.
What are your office hours?
Please visit CONTACT US page
Our instructors will be happy to talk to you but only before or after their classes. If classes are in progress please feel free to address all your questions to our Administrator.
All students must re-register as their term comes to an end or the space will be opened to new students. Once the registration is open we reserve first two weeks for existing students (priority registration) before opening registration for new students. If you are on the waiting list for specific day and time we will be happy to register you after the priority registration is over.
We recommend to start with the lower level so that the student does not become frustrated in a class that is too advanced. We can, however, at any time transfer him/her at no charge to the next level based on student’s background and instructor’s recommendation.
Yes. You can register at any time if space available. Fees will be prorated.
We would be happy to register for a FREE TRIAL class if we are running this promotion. If a FREE TRIAL class is no longer available we will gladly register you for just one class so you can try it out without signing up for the full term.
Please call us (905) 237-9278 or e-mail us to schedule your trial or simply register online. On your registration form you can register for the term (if join late the fee will be pro-rated) or you can indicate TRIAL in the notes field and you will be charged for just one class or no charges will be made in case of a mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org trial.
Please call us or email us to check the availability and to book your trial class. We ask you to come at least 5 minutes earlier to fill out the registration form and pay the fees if it has not been paid already. Students are not allowed in the class until their fees are paid.
You are welcome to stay in the reception area and pick in through the glass doors; however, you are not allowed in the studio since it is disruptive for our students and instructors.
We accept cheques, cash, Visa or MasterCard over the phone, in person or via online registration.
Yes. The payment amount can be split into two equal installments with post-dated cheque provided upon registration. Your registration will not be complete until you provide all post-dated cheques.
1st cheque: date of registration. (today’s date)
2nd cheque: October 1 (Fall Term) or April 1 (Spring Term)
If you join the program after October 1 or April 1 please pay in full.
Fees are pro-rated for students who join late. Once we know the day of your first class we will be able to inform you of your fees amount either by phone or e-mail.
You can reserve your spot with a $50 deposit and pay the balance at your first class or prior. A detailed invoice will be issued once we process your registration and deposit payment.
If you must cancel your class please let us know in writing no later than two weeks before your first lass to get a full refund, otherwise, a fee of $50 will be retained.
The registration fee allows us to effectively process your registration, schedule make-up classes, organize contest/ exhibitions and cover the overall administrative duties.
Family and multiple courses discounts are available. Please inquire.
We have two equal terms consisting of 19 weeks each:
Fall Term (September to January)
Spring Term (February to June)
This may vary year from year.
In addition to that, we have a summer intensive program that runs through July and August.
For specific dates please visit our Program page since it slightly changes a year from year.
We are closed for the following holidays:
Again, since these dates always change a year from year please refer to our Program page for updated information
No, make-up classes will not be needed since the above days are discounted from our program.
This option is subject to a 10% extra fee or a set amount, as well as availability. Although it’s possible when space is allowed, it’s done at the administrator’s discretion. In addition, our experience shows that most of our classes get fully booked just within a few weeks after the start date. Therefore we encourage you to register early and for the full term at least to secure your placement in the class.
Art Combo 1 and 2 and Portfolio allow only up to 6 students in the class. Art Combo 3, Art Combo Teens and Character Design allow up to 8 students. Small class sizes provide students with maximum individual attention and optimum results.
Art One Academy provides all the materials, some exceptions may apply to canvases, clay, and oil for teens and adults. Art Combo 3, Art Combo Teens and Portfolio must buy a set of brushes from us or bring their own. This routing was implemented to train students to look after their own tools which are the indispensable part of being an artist.
We want our students to experience a fully equipped studio using industry quality materials and equipment. Each class follows the art curriculum and all the materials, lesson plans, visual aid, and tools are prepared in advance to achieve the best efficiency.
Covid-19 protocol: Art Kit is required to be purchased by each student.
We do not offer refunds to students who miss classes due to illness, vacations, emergencies, or other events beyond our control including but not limited to inclement weather conditions. However, students can ask for up to 2 makeup classes per term, subject to availability. No credits or refunds will be issued if there is no makeup classes available or options offered are not suitable for students. No makeup classes should be transferred to the next term. There will be no make-ups for the last class in each term. There will be no make-ups on make-ups.
NEW REFUND POLICY DUE TO COVID-19
SUMMER CAMP / MARCH BREAK CAMP / P. A. Days Camp/REGULAR CLASSES:
You will receive a full refund on camps should we not able to open. If our location is open and you would like to cancel it, please provide us with a written notice to receive a Credit for the Future Note.
We ask parents to notify us of any absences since it enables us to provide more makeup classes for all the students.
Even though we will try our best to offer all the options that we have available, please remember that Art One Academy provides makeup classes not as an obligation but as an extra service which is subject to availability.
There will be no refund if you have already attended two or more classes. However, if you decide to withdraw after your first class you will be given a full refund for the unattended classes. The registration fee will be retained or the amount that is equal to the registration fee.
If you must cancel pre-booked classes please let us know in writing before your first class to get a full refund of your tuition fee, the registration fee will be retained.
NEW Covid-19 REFUND POLICY
You will receive a full refund on camps should we not able to open. If our location is open and you would like to cancel, please provide us with written notice to receive a Credit for the Future Note.
Yes, Art One academy reserves the right to cancel or suspend course or change teachers. Make-up classes will be arranged for cancelled classes, which are due to the teacher’s absence or weather conditions. Fortunately, if your teacher is absent we rarely have to cancel the class. Since all the courses are curriculum-based it’s easy for us to arrange for a supply teacher. Classes can be cancelled due to low enrollment.
We ask you to drop-off and pick up students on time. For most classes there is no break between them, therefore, instructors will not be available to look after your child. In case of late pick up (after 10 min. grace period) a charge of $20 dollars will occur.
