BECAUSE WE ARE WORKING IN A PANDEMIC, WE HAVE LISTED THE POLICY FOR EACH WORKSHOP OR EVENT BELOW.
If you need to miss a playgroup due to schedule or illness please consider gifting your spot to a friend or family member. At this time, we are unable to offer class credit, or refund missed groups.
If the group is a COVID-19 related cancellation, our playgroup will be moved to a virtual platform where the instructor reads an art book and leads the class through a fun process art-based activity using art supplies commonly found at home.
ELEMENTARY CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
Workshops: No refunds/make ups for missed classes
SUMMER OR SPECIAL DAY Camps: If you decide to cancel at least two weeks prior to the start of camp, we will issue a refund minus a $50 nonrefundable deposit. Cancellations made within 14 days of the camp start date are NONREFUNDABLE.

Orange Poppy Art Studio
Safety during the Pandemic are our #1 priority!
We are doing the following at a lot more:
A fun (and super safe) environment to meet new friends & interact with peers.
Something to look forward to! (oh man, don’t we all need that right now?!)
We promise your child will laugh, create, & be excited to return.
We will start with outlining our precautions and safety measures for our in-studio courses. We want to be thorough in outlining exactly what you can expect from our team. This will allow you to make a well-informed decision regarding your family.
Space: There are a maximum of 10 students artists enrolled in each of our classes. In many cases there are less than 10. Because of this small ratio, our studio is perfectly spaced so that that we can maintain social distancing guidelines with ease.
Preschool playgroups will be limited to 4 artists. Each artist may have ONE caretaker join them. We will do our best to keep them distanced.
Supplies: Each artist will be supplied with their own supply kit (brushes, glue, scissors, etc.) upon entering the studio. Supply kits will be sanitized by the instructor at the end of each class.
Masks: All guests ages 2+ will be asked to wear a mask while they are in the studio.
We will take outdoor distanced “mask breaks” whenever possible during workshops.
Cleaning and sanitation: Artists will have individual hand sanitizer spray bottles to use when needed during all classes at Orange Poppy Art Studio.
At the end of each class, the instructor will clean and sanitize every surface, table, chair, and supply used in the studio. We are happy to provide information on our cleaning practices upon request.
Artist drop off and pick up: Parents & artists will be asked to wait in designated distanced areas upon check in. Parents will not be permitted in the studio and artists will “suit up” with masks and art smocks prior to entering. Each child will also be required to wash hands or sanitize first and last upon entering and exiting the studio. a Coat Rack will be set up for ease near the entry doors.
*Should guidelines from our state & local government change rapidly all playgroups & clubs will transfer to virtual clubs.
