Covid-19 Info

STUDIO RENOVATIONS

We are deep cleaning and renovating the interior to comply with health recommendations of social distancing, sanitization and sharing. We will set up station tables for students to work individually, students will get an area assigned to them for each project. Tables will be 6 feet apart around the parameter of the room, one table per student and there are plexiglass dividers between each station.

 

CREATION STATIONS

Students will no longer share supplies. Students will create 6 feet apart with plexiglass dividers between each station. We no longer have large shared tables, everyone has their own space to work at. We have thought carefully about what supplies and materials are needed in the space and removed unnecessary items to optimize sanitization. Each student has their own selection of tools at their station, no sharing of supplies.

 

CONTROLLED CLEANING AND MOVEMENT

Hourly hand washing will be mandatory and one student at a time will be permitted at the sink area. We will continue to teach care of materials with the students, with each one being responsible for cleaning their own tools. Floor space has been opened up and floor traffic will be controlled by teachers.

 

MORE CLEANING TIME

Teachers have increased time between lessons to sanitize the studio; work areas, floors, high touch areas and bathroom. After each lesson, teachers will sanitize and reset each station. End of day cleaning time has increased and will be documented and monitored daily. All teachers will be retrained on new sanitization and health standards. Teachers will increase hand washing to every hour minimum and will stay home if feeling ill.

BEHAVIOUR AND TOUCHING

Please talk to your kids before they come about behaviour, listening and touching. Absolutely no touching will be permitted of other students, the teacher, materials, tools or things around the studio outside of their station. Students will be instructed before each lesson of this and to keep their hands to themselves. We will demonstrate the correct amount of space between students that must be adhered to. Failure to follow these rules will result in immediate parent pickup, no exceptions.

 

HEALTH CHECK AND POLICY

Families will answer questions during sign in to ensure each student is fit to participate. Parents must confirm their child is not experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 including: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or painful swallowing, runny nose, nasal congestion, loss of sense of smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of appetite. If a child or any family member in the household is ill, do not come. If a teacher observes signs of illness in a child, parents will be contacted immediately to pick up and no credit or refund will be given. If a teacher is feeling ill we will cancel class with as much notice as possible and credit will be applied to any participating family account.

 

SAME GREAT ART!

Yes, the studio will look different BUT the artwork and standard of teaching has not changed. You can still expect a high quality of teaching, great materials and wonderful smiling teachers who have had new training to ensure health and safety is still their #1 priority with the new regulations.

Cancellation, Refund & Transfer Policy

We do not offer refunds or credits. We can transfer your booking if your booking is cancelled 48 hours prior to the workshop. We cannot provide a transfer after this time. No refunds or credits for no-shows or missed workshops.

Payment Policies

Payment is due upon online registration. Please note—we have no cash on premises and do not accept cash payments. Registration is done online only please. Credits on family accounts will be automatically deducted. If payment is not completed you may be removed from the class. Thanks for your understanding.

4Cats Environment

Every day we aspire to make our studios welcoming, respectful and safe. Our staff work hard to ensure you, your family and friends have a respectful, positive and rewarding experience. In turn, we need to express the expectation that customers will be respectful towards our staff. Though 99.9% of the time we are surrounded by encouragement and the kindness of people, we cannot under any circumstances allow our staff to be demeaned. We first and foremost are a safe space for them. Which is why if there is a breach of that respect from someone, that person will be asked to leave.

What To Wear

Please be dressed for mess as we will be painting with acrylics (which do not come out of clothing). We no longer have shared aprons at the studio. Please bring a face covering. You do not have to wear it while working at your individual stations. Please arrive a few minutes early for the workshop. Late arrival interrupts the class and will disrupt the instructions. Registered students only permitted inside the studio.

Artwork Pick-Up

All artwork will be added to the studio’s Artwork Status page. Here you can check when your artwork is ready to be picked up. When the artwork is ready, please book a Pick Up Appointment. Our policy is to hold art for 2 weeks after it is ready. Please pick up the completed artwork within this time frame. We know how precious it is and we do our best to hold on to the artwork as long as possible. However, the studio is very busy and artwork can pile up! We have lots of artists creating and only have enough room to store artwork for 2 weeks. Please note, you will NOT receive a phone call or email to remind you to pick up your artwork.

 

Good To Know

Kiln clay explosions are unlikely but they do happen. In the event of a clay piece being damaged due to a kiln explosion, we are happy to provide emotional support and offer you a chance to come in and remake your art piece. Refunds are not provided for damaged clay due to kiln explosions. Please note each artist is responsible for ensuring pieces are securely attached in order to avoid breakage. 4Cats is not responsible for repair or replacement to clay pieces.
