Multimedia classes are offered for children aged 4 to 10 years. Throughout the three terms, students produce a wide variety of work in all disciplines: drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and sculpture, including clay. These classes give students the opportunity to use materials and processes that are not available in the home or school setting. Individual lessons focus on different elements of art: colour, line, form, perspective, composition, etc.
Most courses are organized around a theme and include a tour of the collection at the National Gallery of Canada. Classes are two hours long and tuition fees include all materials.
CLASSES FOR OLDER CHILDREN AND TEENS
The Ottawa School of Art also offers classes for older children between 10 and 12 years old as well as teens. These classes encourage students to focus their attention and develop patience using a narrower range of techniques while having fun.
Payment in full must be made at the time of registration. The Ottawa School of Art accepts cash, cheque, VISA or MasterCard credit cards and INTERAC bank debit cards. Registration may be made in person or by telephone (VISA or MasterCard only).
NOTE: There is a $25 (+ HST) administration charge on all NSF cheques.
We urge you to register early, at least two weeks prior to commencement of the course. Space will not be reserved without full payment. The Ottawa School of Art reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances.
WITHDRAWAL, REFUND, TRANSFER AND CANCELLATION POLICY
If for any reason, you wish to withdraw from a course for which you have registered, you must file your request in writing to the Registrar with a copy of your receipt, with the following in mind:
• Prior to the start of classes (up to the starting date of the class) the student receives a refund of the course fees, less a $25 (+ HST) administrative charge.
• Prior to the start of the second class, the student receives a refund of one half of the course fee, less a $25 (+ HST) administrative charge.
• No refunds or credits will be provided once the second class has been delivered, whether attended or not; if a student has suffered an illness a credit toward future courses may, however, be negotiated at the discretion of the school when provided with a doctor’s note, less a $25 (+ HST) administrative charge, as well as a charge for each session from the starting date of the class to the student’s withdrawal date.
If for any reason you wish to transfer from a course for which you have registered to another course, and your request can be accommodated; a $25 (+ HST) fee will be charged for transfers made prior to the start of the classes; and a $25 (+ HST) fee will be charged for transfers made once the first class has taken place.
If for any reason the Ottawa School of Art cancels a course, every attempt will be made to identify an alternative course that will be suitable to the student. If this is not possible, the course fee will be fully refunded, with no administrative charges applied. If, over the duration of a course, a class is cancelled, every attempt will be made to arrange a ‘make up’ class. If this is not possible, the class portion of the course fee will be fully refunded, with no administration fee applied.
NOTE: Student withdrawal, refund, or transfer requests will not be processed by telephone. In many cases, they are handled by fax, using a special form. Refunds will be issued by cheque only; please allow 7 – 14 days for processing.
